Legal Writing for Students and New Lawyers: Writing Effective Memoranda of Law

Students and new lawyers are frequently asked to write memoranda of law for lawyers and/or their clients. The purpose is to answer one or more questions based on a specific set of facts arising from the client’s situation. A memo thoroughly analyses the germane law, applies it to those facts and arrives at a conclusion. The ability to write an effective legal memorandum is an essential skill early in one’s legal career.

Of course you know how to write a legal memo. But writing a clear, useful and powerful memo is more challenging and presents an opportunity for you to excel and stand out. Learn how to improve your memo-writing skills in this hands-on program which will include time for Q&A at the conclusion.
