Wednesday 21st March, 2018 1:00 pm – Wednesday 21st March, 2018 2:00 pm

At your desk, delivered live online

One of the ways reputation is built, or damaged, is through the presentation of documents and correspondence. Whether the correspondence is directed internally or externally, it should consistently reflect professionalism which underpins brand value.

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 pitched at legal practitioners and support staff who deal with document creation and management.
