AN OBJECTIVE APPROACH TO LEGAL EDITING

MANAGING BY INFLUENCE TO BUILD LOYALTY

SPEAKER: ROSS GUBERMAN

SPEAKERS: TRACY LALONDE & BURTON LIPSHIE

MARCH 15, 2012

8:30 AM - 10:15 AM

APRIL 19, 2012

8:30 AM - 10:15 AM

This workshop addresses one of the most common challenges

in the legal industry: the claim that supervisor

changes and edits are “idiosyncratic,” “inconsistent,” and

“subjective.” As an alternative to wholesale rewriting, this

program will teach the skills necessary for rising associates

to properly edit the work of those they supervise. Through

timely and interesting examples, participants will learn to:

• Apply objective, even scientific, approaches to editing for both structure and style

• Use editing techniques that save time and create a more efficient work environment

• Clearly communicate their expectations so their team can produce better results

Ross Guberman is the founder and president of Legal Writing Pro, an advanced legalwriting

training and consulting firm. He conducts hundreds of programs a year for many

of the world's most prestigious law firms and for dozens of state and federal agencies and

bar associations. Ross is also a Professorial Lecturer in Law at The George Washington

University Law School. He holds degrees from Yale, the Sorbonne, and The University of

Chicago Law School. Oxford University Press has recently published Ross’s Point Made:

How to Write Like the Nation’s Top Advocates. Ross is also a former professional musician

and an award-winning journalist. The American Society for Training & Development has

awarded Ross its Certified Professional in Learning and Performance TM credential, and

he has addressed several major international conferences.

As attorneys progress through their legal careers, they may

find themselves in the position where they are responsible

for getting the work done but without formal authority for

doing so. This workshop will address how to accomplish

the task through others in a way that achieves the goal and

builds loyalty.

How to manage in the round – up, down and sideways, will

also be discussed. During the program, participants will

learn how to:

• Manage by influence to build loyalty

• Delegate for productivity and efficiency

• Prepare for, deliver and receive feedback
