All too often, lawyers' persuasiveness and perceived value are compromised by grand vocabularies and engrained assumptions about what constitutes a "sound" end product. Gain a significant advantage in the workplace this summer by learning to translate "legal writing" in to something your supervising attorney can absorb with ease and readily use to solve a specific problem. Through personal advice and guided analysis of two sample documents on the same legal issue - all in small "breakout" groups - alumni volunteers will equip students with key insights, and give attendees their first "review" before professional evaluations begin. Sponsored by the Career & Professional Development Center. Registration is required, and space is limited to the first forty (40) students to RSVP. To reserve your place in the workshop, please email Alan Dickinson at Dickinson@law.duke.edu, with your name and "Work Product Workshop" in the subject line.
