Bryan Garners seminars teach the habits of effective legal writers: how you can write about law using the same techniques that professional writers of nonfiction use. Youll need an arresting opener, a clean narrative line, and polish throughout.
How many lawyers are effective legal writers? “Not many,” Garner says. “But I like helping more lawyers move into the upper echelon.”
Let Garner help you become not just a better writer but a better thinker. The two go hand in hand.
Make a difference in your career: join us for a day to sharpen your legal-writing and advocacy skills. Learn techniques vital to the effective lawyers arsenal.Public-Seminar Brochures > Register for a public seminar >
