PIXEL PERSUASION

Legal Writing for the 21st Century

Tuesday, May 26, 2020
12:00 pm- 1:00 pm CT

1 hour of General CLE Credit

More and more judges are reading briefs on computer screens, rather than on paper. While many of the basic principles of effective brief writing apply regardless of the manner in which the court consumes your brief, the electronic medium presents new opportunities to leverage both technology and principles of document design and web usability to give your brief even more persuasive power.

In this program, attendees learned how to more persuasively present information intended to be read on a screen in pdf format. We discussed:

  • how judges are reading briefs today;
  • the important differences between screen-reading and paper-reading;
  • the F-pattern; and
  • tips for writing for the 21st-Century legal reader
