  • New! Advanced-level online 3.5 hour workshop for telephoning and emailing in English.  The difference between a good law firm and a great international law firm is more than cases won or money earned – it is the relationship with clients. Secretaries and legal assistants need to have exceptional customer service skills in English and use phrases that create positive feelings in clients and colleagues. This course takes a "client-centric" approach to general and advanced English for legal assistants and secretarial staff. The sessions are designed to teach standard phrases when dealing with clients and lawyers from around the World, then trainers work with the team to formulate a series of templates so assistants all speak and write consistently across branches and countries. Integrated into each session are advanced grammar and law firm relevant vocabulary. The sessions include note-taking and listening skills, conflict management skills, customer service language, firm-specific writing style, emailing and telephoning skills, video-conferencing, social media (LinkedIn) communication, and general business English communication.

  • Clearly drafted contracts facilitate the transaction. They are easier to understand and negotiate, less likely to have mistakes, and less open to competing interpretations. In this interactive workshop, participants learn (1) a reasoning technique to logically map out contract provisions that achieve the intended result; (2) strategies for drafting clear, concise provisions; and (3) common drafting errors and litigated terms. Throughout the workshop, participants review and edit excerpts from transactional documents from practice.

  • Poor communication is the no. 1 client complaint about lawyers. Emails are easily the most common type of lawyer-client communication. This interactive workshop begins with 10 client-friendly email strategies, including how to structure using “ICRA“; close with clear next steps; edit for clarity and concision; and strike an appropriate, positive tone. Participants then break into groups and apply the 10 strategies to emails from practice. The workshop concludes with email “do’s and don’ts,“ including a handy checklist for each participant.

  • This foundational workshop addresses the three skills partners would most like to see improved in associates’ legal writing in English. Participants begin by learning a technique for striking the right tone in legal correspondence. They then take part in a usage competition, with sentences from practice that test their ability to spot the most common legal vocabulary, grammar, and punctuation errors – followed by practical tips on how to avoid/correct them. Finally, participants learn how to cut their way to better style.
