MS083: Writing Legally Defensible and Consumer Friendly Reports

Friday, February 21, 2014 4:00 PM–5:50 PM


Written reports are often the only way others know of our work. In high stakes cases, reports can make or break a case. Drawing on research on report writing and a review of legal guidelines, this workshop will teach strategies for writing reports that are both useful to consumers and easy to defend. Participants will review examples of well written and poorly written reports and practice evaluating the useful sample reports.
