One of the ways a law firm or lawyer’s professional reputation may be enhanced (or damaged) is in the way documents and correspondence are written and presented.  Whether the correspondence is for internal or external parties, it should reflect the writer’s professionalism and underpins your firm’s brand.

This practical session will focus on four areas that are essential for consistently producing the highest quality correspondence:
1.     Structure – good structure adds clarity to your communications
2.     Plain English – general principles and the provision of legal specific resources
3.     Proofreading/Editing – a focus on the use of amendment marks to save time when editing
4.     Templates and Precedents – how to access and create high quality templates and precedents

This session is appropriate for legal practitioners and support staff who deal with document creation and management.
