Battling the legalese
Webinar - May 19, 2021 at 10:00am - 11am
Our ideas around the law and legal language can really muddy the waters when it comes to clear, concise communications. Did you know that there's a big push globally to be plainer in our legal communications? This is true in legislation, contract law, and all areas of government.
In this free, ACE member webinar we'll cover:
- the challenges we face in writing when our work has legal risk or weight
- the resulting mistakes we're making
- what the research tells us about how plain language stands up in court and in contracts
- what plain legal language looks like
- a process to use to breakdown and rewrite legal language
