Practical Skills solutions
Lawyering success requires practice-ready skills. Attorneys struggle when they don’t embrace skills valued by employers and clients. Instead, they assume that hard work and subject matter expertise will advance their careers. That’s wrong. It takes unique abilities to serve as a trusted advisor, zealous advocate, and business generator.
Lawrite Consulting is training a new generation of practice-ready professionals. Productivity thrives when analytical thinking is married to logical, unambiguous, and concise writing. Long before most schools, firms, and government agencies recognized the value of practical skills development, we were training professionals in problem solving, writing, project management, and client service. Our training builds self-directed learning skills that ensure long-term success.
Educating professionals consumes scarce business resources. Employers often struggle to find in-house staff with sufficient time, interest, or teaching skills. Or they’re frustrated by practitioners who recycle common "tips" without regard to learning strategies. Employers are left wanting for cost-efficient solutions that satisfy busy, skeptical decision makers.
Teaching expertise drives the learning process. Our experience training students, attorneys, and professionals proves that progress is achieved by promoting process-oriented techniques over theory. That, combined with active learning exercises, generates skills valued by employers.
We offer workshop and individual coaching solutions for attorneys, support professionals, and summer associates. Contact us to request sample workshop agendas.
Legal Writing - build advanced skills in critical thinking; analytical problem solving; the writing process; structural paradigms; rule explanation and synthesis; strategic fact applications; reader-centric stylistic conventions for precision, clarity, and brevity; the “Plain English” Doctrine; and revision techniques.
Project Management - develop techniques to complete projects on time and in a cost-efficient manner, including taking and completing assignments, information and time management skills, seeking and using feedback, and teamwork building strategies.

Our individual coaching services resolve specific skills issues. That training begins by diagnosing strengths and weaknesses. From there, we implement focused, user-friendly improvement strategies.
