Among the aptitudes that are most sought after in the domain of international dispute settlement is the capacity to display excellent writing skills: the ability to express argumens clearly and logically in concise sentences, to build convincing lines of reasoning, to identify the central theme of a case for focus and direction, to tell compelling stories and to capture the imagination of decision-makers. While some lawyers are naturals in legal writing, most take a longer route to master it. Everyone can benefit from a course that formalizes and theorizes what makes good writing and trains participants to apply these rules and tricks in practice.
It cannot be overemphasized: excellent legal writing skills are one of the top three of four must-haves that employers in the field of law seek when hiring an associate. Your ability to exhibit such skills is thus crucial on the job market.
