As attorneys advance in their careers, their editing skills become just as important as their writing skills. By working through before-and-after examples, participants will learn structural and stylistic editing strategies for improving drafts dispassionately, communicating their preferences to colleagues, and fostering a collaborative work environment.

Ross Guberman is the president of Legal Writing Pro LLC, a training and consulting firm. He has conducted more than a thousand programs on three continents for many of the largest and most prestigious law firms, for federal judges and for dozens of agencies and bar associations. Ross is also a Professorial Lecturer in Law at The George Washington University Law School, where he teaches a seminar on drafting and writing strategy. Ross holds degrees from Yale, the Sorbonne, and The University of Chicago Law School. Ross’s Point Made: How to Write Like the Nation’s Top Advocates became an Amazon bestseller shortly after it was published by Oxford University Press in 2011. Reviewers have praised it as a “tour de force,” “a must for the library of veteran litigators,” and “an indispensable tool” filled with “practical, trenchant advice.” His next book will be on how to write like the world’s greatest judges.
