Judge Mark Painter is a court of appeals judge in Cincinnati, Ohio and he has written a wonderful book called The Legal Writer. It’s a short book (now in the 3rd edition) that gives 40 rules for lawyers and judges to use to make their writing clearer. I have a copy on my bookshelf, and believe me it’s got a lot of highlighting. What could be better than having this handy little reference guide?
Well, being able to attend a one day seminar given by Judge Painter himself. And if you live in New Orleans, Baton Rouge or Shreveport that’s exactly what you can do during the month of April. He’ll appear in Shreveport on April 15th, Baton Rouge on April 17th, and New Orleans on April 18th. For more information check out this PDF file. It’s only $289 for an all day program that will most certainly teach you how to communicate more effectively.
