MVA to Host Writing Seminar

October 28, 2010


Writing is an essential career tool--but it is a skill that does not come easily!  Join nationally acclaimed lecturer and author Steven Stark for a day on writing for litigators, including guidance on writing at the trial and appellate levels.  Described as the "David Letterman of CLE" and known for his witty and engaging style, he will share with you dozens of everyday useful hints to help you write briefs and motions that command attention.

Through a combination of lecture, demonstration and hands-on exercises, you will learn:

  • The do's and don'ts of legal prose
  • How to write and edit more efficiently
  • How to apply storytelling to your writing of statements of fact
  • How studying advertisements can help your arguments

Once learned, the skills to better writing are yours for life.  And you won't believe how easy some of Stark's suggestions are to apply to your work!
