An Objective Approach to Legal Editing
2012 Professional Development Workshop Series

Thursday, March 15, 2012 8:30 am-10:15 am


2.0 NY TRANSITIONAL/NON-TRANSITIONAL CLE SKILLS CREDITS PROVIDED

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

This program’s updated content will provide CLE credit to all attendees, even if they attended in the past .

Speaker: Ross Guberman, Founder and President, Legal Writing Pro

Event is free for members and attorneys from sponsoring law firms, $60 for non-members. For details please call 212.382.6663. We cannot provide refunds for this event, this series is not a part of firm passports.
