Lieff Cabraser’s New York office will be hosting the American Association for Justice (AAJ) Effective Legal Writing Workshop, with firm partner Annika K. Martin serving as featured faculty across the event’s multiple content blocks. The workshop will be held April 12th and 13th, 2018 at Lieff Cabraser’s offices in New York City.

As the event’s description notes, “Legal writing is an essential, yet frequently overlooked, skill for every trial attorney. Pretrial motions set the tone and can even make or break your case, which is why it is so important to capture the attention of your judge right from the introductory paragraph of your first brief.” The Effective Legal Writing Workshop will educate attendees on how to understand and sympathize with their target audience, master a unique writing style, improve presentation, craft an appealing narrative, and curate their content to keep readers engaged from beginning to end.

Sponsored by Lisa Blue and Williams Kherkher, the 2-day event will include presentations on Understanding and Sympathizing With Your Audience, The Importance of Style, Presentation Matters, and Telling an Effective Story, with workshops covering topics including Creating a Narrative, Framing for the Hostile Judge, Crafting a Paragraph, and The Introduction: The Most Important Three Pages of Your Brief.
