Polish your English – for legal support staff

Workshop information

We all know that legal writing must be polished and professional at all times, but how do you ensure that everything you write
correct? How do you know the dictation uses correct punctuation? How do you train your eye to spot errors or inconsistencies
in grammar, spelling and punctuation?

For example: When do you use a comma or a semi-colon? What is correct sentence structure? How long should a sentence be?
Is it ‘inquiry’ or ‘enquiry’? What’s the difference between ‘principal’ and ‘principle’?

This highly practical workshop will give you the knowledge, tools and skills to understand how to check that grammar and punctuation are correct.
