Add to Calendar 2018-02-01 12:15:00 2018-02-01 13:20:00 Finishing Touches: Revising, Editing, and Proofreading Your Own Work

Many college students write papers and turn in their first drafts.  That process doesn’t work in law school!  In this session, you will learn how to review your work so that your final paper demonstrates that you are smart, thoughtful, precise, and careful.  Julie Schrager is a U. of C. alum and is Schiff Hardin’s legal writing coach.  She works closely with summer associates and new lawyers to improve their legal writing skills.
