Reader Roadblocks and How to Write Around Them by Professor Lisa Mazzie. Whether lawyers write briefs to a court, memos or letters to others, or contracts between parties, they are trying to persuade their readers—the court, the client, or other counsel—that they’re right. But the reader doesn’t always get this message, either because the reader can’t find the message, or the reader resists it. In this session, we will look at reader roadblocks: the ways readers process information and what causes readers to either miss or resist the meaning. And we’ll look at ways to write that take into account these reader roadblocks. Attendees are encouraged to send writing samples a week before the event (instructions will be sent closer to the program). We can work with those samples during the session.

Please forward to classmates or colleagues that may want to attend.
