Yesterday’s webinar, “Pixel Persuasion: Legal Writing for the 21st Century,” offered attendees a wealth of information! If you missed it, watch a recording of the webinar and view the slide deck below to learn the dos and don’ts of preparing legal documents for judges who are increasingly reading briefs on computers screens instead of paper.
In this webinar, legal research and writing expert Lisa Solomon explained how to persuasively present information intended to be read on a screen in pdf format. Among other things, she discussed:
- How judges are reading briefs today
- Differences between screen-reading and paper-reading
- The F-pattern for reading web content
- Tips for writing for the 21st-Century legal reader
One interesting tidbit that we learned during the webinar was that as far back as January of 2012, 58% of federal court judges were using iPads for court work.
