The DC Bar Association is planning a CLE seminar titled Effective Writing for Lawyers Workshop.

The program will take place on Friday, November 16 from 9:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. at the DC Bar Conference Center, 1250 H Street, NW, Washington, DC.

This essential course for new or seasoned attorneys teaches participants how to recognize and correct common writing problems. Through a series of interactive exercises, participants will learn how to fix those problems and make full and bureaucratic language clear and concise. Participants also will learn how to think about the writing process, how to untangle sentences, and how to edit.

The speakers are Jody Beck and Kate Sylvester, both of Writewell.
