Description:
You need to write a persuasive memo to stakeholders, clients or staff. How well are you prepared? While all writing skills are significant in the legal environment, the ability to write persuasively requires a specific form of writing that demands attention to form, analysis of the intended audiences’ motivations, and the use of valid reasoning and supporting documentation.  During this webinar, participants will not only examine the key elements of persuasive writing, but will work on developing and enhancing superior writing skills.  
 
Objectives:
  • Summarize the key principles and elements of persuasive texts
  • Analyze the reader’s perspective in order to optimize the chances for persuasion
  • Produce different forms of persuasive documents typical of contemporary law firms
  • Analyze the quality of the documents you produce and the likelihood of achieving   your intended outcome
