2019 Persuasive Writing Workshop

2019 Persuasive Writing Workshop


This hands-on workshop teaches participants how to use fact-busting and principles of storytelling and persuasion to craft fact-driven written advocacy that persuasively integrates the facts of one's case with relevant legal principles. Through plenary and small group sessions, participants will find that these techniques result in writing that is enjoyable to read and enhances one's chances of winning. During the course of the workshop, participants will apply these principles to one of their own cases. Registration will be limited to 36 federal defender staff, CJA panel attorneys, and other legal professionals who provide work under the Criminal Justice Act. Participants must bring to the workshop an open CJA case in which they will be filing a written work product (e.g., pre-trial or trial motion, sentencing memo involving some legal challenge, opening brief on appeal). Please note that due to the workshop format of this program, participation in all of the sessions is mandatory.
