Intensive Legal Usage

This interactive workshop offers an intensive treatment of legal usage (grammar, punctuation, vocabulary).

Participants take part in three tests of their ability to spot and correct the most common legal usage errors – from non-parallel constructions to mismatched prepositions to incorrect legal terminology. The tests use examples from participants’ own work product when possible. Participants also receive a list of 25 common legal usage errors.
