Top Preparation Tips
Clear Language: Avoid using practice-specific jargon. Where you cannot avoid this, explain what you mean.
Balance: Be mindful of the diverse perspectives of your audience.
Equality Issues: Consider inclusivity and equality from a legal and a writing perspective.
Fact Checking: The Law Society does not verify statute, case citations, or content. Please ensure that you are satisfied with the accuracy of your materials prior to submission.
Credit: If you are updating a previous paper by another lawyer, remember to credit the original authors. If an articling student or associate assists you with your paper, remember to credit them as well.
Copyright: If you wish to include any copyright protected material (e.g., photos, videos, previously published papers, or articles), we’ll happily assist in securing reprint permission. Please make your request at least 3 weeks prior to your presentation date. We assume that all materials are free of any copyright concerns unless they have been flagged by you.
