Persuasive Writing Skills
You need to write a persuasive memo to stakeholders, clients or staff. How well are you prepared? While all writing skills are significant in the legal environment, the ability to write persuasively requires a specific form of writing that demands attention to form, analysis of the intended audiences’ motivations, and the use of valid reasoning and supporting documentation. During this webinar, participants will not only examine the key elements of persuasive writing, but will work on developing and enhancing superior writing skills.
The above described webinar is being hosted at the below locations. Please RSVP to the specific individual listed at the location you will attend.
