Is this going to be any fun?

Yes! Oh, we get it. It sounds awful—a day of legal writing. But don’t be fooled by the topic. There’s a reason that Professor Garner is the preeminent lecturer on legal writing. He’s inspiring and practical at the same time. His tongue-in-cheek humor adds some sass to the topic, and he strongly encourages you to bring your own humor to your learning. Not only will you learn important how-tos for good writing and persuasive writing, but you’ll feel more empowered to produce effective work every day. 

Don’t believe us? Check out what people said about their time with Professor Garner in the comments section on the Advanced Legal Writing & Editing page. 

Still not convinced? Take a peek at David Foster Wallace’s write-up on Professor Garner in Consider the Lobster on American usage. It’s a playful review of the man himself as much as his book.
