More and more judges are reading briefs on computer screens, rather than on paper. While many of the basic principles of effective brief writing apply regardless of the manner in which the court consumes your brief, the electronic medium presents new opportunities to leverage both technology and principles of document design and web usability to give your brief even more persuasive power.
In this program, you’ll learn how to more persuasively present information intended to be read on a screen in pdf format. Lisa will discuss:
-how judges are reading briefs today
-the important differences between screen-reading and paper-reading
-tips for writing for the 21st-Century legal reader
