Louisiana legal-writing seminar

For those who like to plan their CLE way ahead of time: the Louisiana State Bar Association is holding a legal-writing seminar in New Orleans on March 20, 2009. The seminar will be held at the Sheraton, 500 Canal Street. Yours truly is on the program, which includes the following sessions:

  • 9:30 — 10:30 a.m.: Creating Contracts: Portrait of the Artist as a Young Lawyer, by Albert J. Derbes IV.
  • 10:45 – 11:45 a.m.: Counting Each Shot: Techniques for Emphasis and De-emphasis, by Raymond P. Ward.
  • 1:00 – 2:00 p.m.: Finding and Using Your Main Message for Maximum Persuasive Power, by Michael R. Fontham.

It’s still too early to register, but not too early to mark your calendars.
