This program will help you improve your legal writing, and maybe even enjoy the writing process a little more, by designing your own writing checklists to streamline the writing and quality-control process. The program will teach you how to use checklists to enable you to put recurring issues on "autopilot," saving time and brain power for the heavy lifting of research and analysis. It will also teach you how to communicate more effectively with judges, colleagues, and clients through the regular use of checklists. Whether you are a new lawyer, an experienced practitioner, or a legal administrator, this class will help you consistently deliver a work product that satisfies your professional audience. Lora Keenan is a legal writing consultant, coach, and trainer. She worked for the Oregon appellate courts as a lawyer for more than 20 years, including drafting and editing appellate court decisions. She has also worked for the Oregon Department of Justice as Public Records Counsel.
