This session will outline:

  • Why clear writing/plain language matters for lawyers and their relationships with their clients more than ever;
  • The myth of the so-called "professional" writing voice;
  • How and why email and web-based communications differ from "conventional" paper-based legal writing;
  • Reflecting on our writing habits that sometimes make life hard for your client reader, and undermine your relationship with them; and
  • Tips and traps on language, structure and design that will work for you and for your client (in your advices and in your other documents).
