Another CLE from QPL!

Leave a comment

Looks like I’ll be teaching another CLE on legal writing with the Tennessee Bar Association! Hope to see some of you join us on Monday, June 26th, at the Tennessee Bar Center in Nashville. It’s a full day of legal writing seminars, and I’m teaching the last two segments. One is on counterarguments, and the other is on proofreading and polishing. The TBA has wrapped the whole thing in a Minecraft theme, so this should be interesting! 🙂

2016 AAfPE Conference

​Goodbye, New York; San Antonio, here I come! Yesterday was my first time speaking at the United Nations, but I hope it won’t be my last. What an awesome experience! Now I’m looking forward to my two presentations at the AAfPE Conference. Instead of focusing only on legal writing, this year I’m presenting one session on classroom teaching tips and another on campus security. Should be fun!

2015 AAfPE Conference

I’m really excited to be in Milwaukee attending the 2015 Annual Conference of the American Association for Paralegal Educators (AAfPE)! Last year’s conference was phenomenal, so I’ve been looking forward to learning even more about best practices for teaching legal support skills and strategies. This year, not only did I have the privilege of serving on the conference planning committee, but I am presenting two separate sessions on Friday. Right now I’m sitting in a pre-conference workshop on legal technology and eDiscovery (while multitasking on my blog… don’t tell anyone). More

Size Matters

As I always say to lawyers, teachers, and presenters of any kind, if the audience can’t see, read, decipher, or otherwise make sense of your visual aids, then you’re wasting time, energy, and precious A/V real estate. Enlarge the font, enlarge the font, enlarge the font. Please.
