Solid Legal Writing Skills for New Lawyers

Wednesday, May 21, 2014, 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM PT, Bar Center at 401, Suite 120 (first floor).

Featuring: Judge Ronald Prager (D-71 Superior Court of California, Civil), Judge Mitchell Dembin (United States Magistrate Judge, Southern District of California), Charles ‘Chuck’ Dick, Esq.

Presented by the New Lawyer Division and Diversity Fellowship Program of the San Diego County Bar Association.

With recent cuts to court funding, Judges handle more cases simultaneously than ever. As a result, legal writing must be efficient and unique to serve an attorney's individual interests. Learn how to write eye-catching, mind-changing legal briefs and motions that will most effectively serve your client's needs.

Topics to be discussed: What do judges want to read; Ordering your argument (primacy); How to be concise while remaining thorough; Developing style within complex advocacy; and Comparing and contrasting precedent. This CLE is worth 1.0 GEN
