Please remember to sign up for 2019 Midwinter Advocacy Practicum, which will take place on January 30, 2019 at 1:00 to 5:00 PST at the Millennium Biltmore Hotel.  Description and registration link below.

Advocacy Practicum–Advocacy in Writing the Perfect Brief: Tips From Expert Writers
Advanced Registration Only! Separate Registration Fee Required: Practicum Only - $325
If registering for the meeting - $200

The Forum is thrilled to be able to present an advocacy practicum dedicated to the elusive but laudatory goal of every construction lawyer—effective and crisp legal writing.

Bryan A. Garner’s extensive writing on the language of the law led The Green Bag to call him a "leading authority on good legal writing." A chorus of other publications—including The New York Times, Trial Magazine, and Harvard Law Review—have echoed that sentiment.
Garner is editor in chief of Black’s Law Dictionary and the author of many leading works on legal style, including Garner’s Dictionary of Legal Usage, The Elements of Legal Style, The Redbook: A Manual on Legal Style, The Winning Brief, Legal Writing in Plain English, and The Winning Oral Argument. He is co-author of two books with Justice Antonin Scalia, Reading Law: The Interpretation of Legal Texts and Making Your Case: The Art of Persuading Judges. He is also the author of Better Business Writing, a work focused on the art of communicating in the business world, published by the Harvard Business Review. His latest books are The Chicago Guide to Grammar, Usage, and Punctuation and The Law of Judicial Precedent, written with 12 judicial coauthors, including Justice Neil M. Gorsuch of the United States Supreme Court.

The second half of the Practicum shall be a panel discussion of leading legal writers who will discuss best practices for lawyers on how to present the most persuasive arguments and evidence to a court or arbitration panel. Anticipated panelists include the country's preeminent legal writing instructor, a federal judge and a leading construction lawyer. Since this program is a special event with limited seating, attendees must register for it separately.
