Product ID: CA3053W
Presented By: State Bar of Wisconsin PINNACLE

This program is an excerpt from Write Away: Effective Legal Writing in 2019.

In Improving Your Persuasion: Legal Typography and Citations, civil appellate litigator Dylan O. Drummond will share his best tips for holding readers’ attention spans and making your briefs more enjoyable to read.
