Stuart Teicher
Here's a refresher, and a fresh approach to advice on creating an effective persuasive legal writing. The "CLE Performer" Stuart Teicher shows how to make legal writing clearer, concise and direct. Get down and dirty with some technicalities of sentence structure, get the lowdown on Stuart's "Shortwriting" method for reducing long sentences, and get the skinny on "the only punctuation you'll ever need to know." There will also be a hands-on section where participants rewrite passages on their own and workshop the results as a group. Register now.
