Writing to Win
with joe regalia
Pulling from lawyers that practice in the nation’s most prestigious courts, this workshop covers proven techniques to elevate your legal writing: from sentence-level style to rhetorical flourishes.
Virtual or in-person
Ideal for all attorneys
1-3 hour versions
In-demand skills for summer associates
Summers often make writing harder than it needs to be. In this Master Class, the first he has offered on-demand, Ross will share his decades of experience helping younger attorneys write faster and more effectively.
We’ve divided this Master Class into bite-sized segments tied to Ross’s steps. Each segment begins with a video session led by Ross himself. Virtual breakout sessions then allow summers to practice each step of the method.
Thank you for putting together and running the trainings we had this week! They were helpful and I definitely came away with a lot of useful writing tips.

We are on a mission to make legal skills training effective, easy to use, and engaging.
The legal industry is undergoing a tectonic shift. Technology, new business models, and evolving client needs are reshaping what it means to practice law. And that means the skills attorneys need to thrive are changing, too.
Write.law’s core goal is to help attorneys see real results in their skills training. We spent years studying and compiling science-backed and effective legal writing, practice, and technology skills used by the world’s best lawyers. Then we built workshops and interactive courses using the latest educational science so that lawyers can learn new skills step-by-step.
