LSS Presents Plain Language Training with the Victoria Law Foundation
30 August, 2016
Monash Law Students' Society
During university, students are traditionally taught skills to dissect judgments, legislation and other legal documents, and instinctively tend to write in a tone based on these models. However, as more and more law firms adopt plain language policies, law students wanting to make their mark on the profession need to display an ability to deliver the law with a client-centred focus.
The training provides law students from all year levels the chance to develop their legal writing skills. Principles taught will help law students write more succinctly in assignments and examinations, and provides a practical example of what is expected of them in the workplace.
