The Legal Writing Skills course trains anyone working in the legal profession to write effectively, especially attorneys. The course uses Bryan Garner's Legal Writing in Plain English. The focus is on writing legal documents that are understandable, professional, and effective in achieving the writer's goals.
The online lessons contain clear explanations and many examples. You go at your own pace and submit assignments when you are ready. The instructor evaluates the activities and examinations, comments on skills you have learned and skills that still need polish, coaches you through learning the skills, and certifies your competence. You receive a graduation certificate for framing at the end of the course.
Course Time: You will go through the course at your own pace, so you could complete it within a few weeks. However, you have up to two months to complete the course so you can fit the study time into your schedule. All lessons must be finished within the two-month period.
Tuition is $295.
