PALS is pleased to once again offer a writing workshop to PALS minority summer associates and interns. Writing is a critical element of attorney development, and we encourage law students to take advantage of this opportunity. 

This interactive program, created for summer associates and interns, teaches specific strategies for writing clear and concise legal documents, whether briefs, memos, letters, or emails. Through examples and exercises, participants learn to eliminate common writing weaknesses on four levels: document organization, paragraph construction, sentence structure, and word choice.
