Appellate Legal Writing Seminar held in collaboration with Office of Judicial Education


In a collaborative event between the Tommy G. Thompson Center on Public Leadership (The Center), the Office of Judicial Education, Wisconsin Supreme Court and the University of Wisconsin Law School, brought together UW professors, Appellate Judges and staff for a legal writing seminar at the beginning of September. The Keynote speaker, Professor Timothy P. Terrell is a renowned author and presenter on the subject. Terrell has for more than a decade conducted the writing and editing portion of the training program for new appellate judges at NYU Law School’s Institute of Judicial Administration. In addition to presenting programs around the country to law firms and bar associations, he is the primary consultant on legal writing to the international association of law firms called Lex Mundi and has conducted programs at its member firms around the world. He is the coauthor of a popular text on legal writing, entitled Thinking Like a Writer: A Lawyer’s Guide to Effective Writing and Editing (3d ed., 2008, Practicing Law Institute).

The Center was able to live our mission in training Wisconsin public servants in this inaugural conference. We could not be more honored to host this educational event on public leadership and hope to collaborate on more of these events with other public servants in the future.
