It’s all about putting things in the right order. It’s about different pieces interacting in a way that makes sense. No, Stuart Teicher is not talking about a symphony or your greatest pop song, he’s talking about your legal writing. In this interesting program, Stuart will tackle the hardest part of legal writing — the organization phase. He’ll teach us how to create a mind map, and he’ll get into the details about outlining. In the end you’ll learn how to put together a legal writing that will make others sing your praises.
