I must say that I had a wonderful time at the training and I learnt a lot. Lawyers in Anglo-Saxon countries say that the English language is a tool of their trade,yet so many don't use it effectively. The training equipped me with the necessary skills to use English legal writing to communicate more effectively.

For sure, everybody enjoyed the training. It was very nice to hear a native speaker, specially one with such high legal drafting techniques

Excellent course. I recommend the training 'Contract Drafting and Legal Writing'. It gave to me the chance to understand the need of Plain Legal English in contracts as a way to mitigate ambiguity or misinterpretation of a clause. Also the training clarified the context in which Anglo-Saxon Legal System is inserted, since the Brazilian Legal System is in a different one.

Letter writing skills

As a lawyer your competence will often be judged from the style,    tone and content of your writing. Its neither fair nor accurate in assessing ability but it is a fact of life that when we read a letter we tend to build up a mental picture of the person who wrote it. You want people to think of you as both professional and competent and so clear, structured written texts, both in letters, and legal documents are what you should always aim to produce. >>>> read more
