    Closed Captioned. Great news: all webinar attendees will receive a 30% discount on Judge Bacharach's book Legal Writing: A Judge's Perspective on the Science and Rhetoric of the Written Word. until September 30, 2020.

    Judge Bacharach plans to concentrate on several of the more critical aspects from this book, focusing primarily on ways that advocates can enhance the clarity of their legal writing. For example, many legal-writing books explain the importance of providing context before details. I plan to start from that premise and show, with psycholinguistic examples, why that's important and use a few examples of effective introductions to illustrate how to provide context before details.

    Another key aspect of clarity involves transitions. Many legal-writing books explain the importance of effective transitioning between sentences. One method, sometimes discussed, is the placement of "old information" before "new information." Judge Bacharach will explain this method, using psycholinguistic studies to demonstrate the importance of putting old information before new information and how to maximize the usefulness of this method. He will use examples from famous oratory, including FDR's first inaugural address, and some select examples from well-known advocates.

    This webinar will explain in a simple, direct way how to maximize clarity, using these kinds of examples to demonstrate how others make their oratory and writing so clear and to use empirical data to show that these methods have been proven effective in enhancing the clarity of one's communication.
