Email and Memos for Paralegals: A Guided Tour Through Successful Writing Techniques

February 7

Polish your legal writing technique and make sure your emails and memos are not a liability to your firm.

We all know how important excellent writing skills are for anyone in the legal profession. When we write to a court, we all take due care in making sure we have a polished product before submitting it for the judge to read. Are you doing the same when you write emails and memos in your law office? You should be. You will be provided with a guided tour to email and memo writing techniques for paralegals. This topic hopes to challenge you to think carefully about what goes in each and how to improve your writing to avoid potential pitfalls, security risks and malpractice actions. You will leave prepared for the art of writing emails and memos.
