EVENT DETAIL

Professional Development Workshop
An Objective Approach to Legal Editing

Thursday, February 17, 2011 8:30 am-10:15am




This program provides 2.0 transitional/non-transitional NY CLE credits in Practice Management

This workshop addresses one of the most common challenges in the legal industry: the claim that supervisor changes and edits are "idiosyncratic," "inconsistent," and "subjective." As an alternative to wholesale rewriting, this program will teach the skills necessary for rising associates to properly edit the work of those they supervise. Through timely and interesting examples, participants will learn to:


  • Apply objective, even scientific, approaches to editing for both structure and style

  • Use editing techniques that save time and create a more efficient work environment

  • Clearly communicate their expectations so their team can produce better results
Speaker: Ross Guberman, Legal Writing Pro
