Geneva Fountain presented a continuing education webinar titled, "A Paralegal's Guide to Pleadings, Motions, Discovery Requests and Briefs," on Thursday, October 29, 2020. The course was sponsored by the Institute for Paralegal Education.
Drafting and preparing legal documents is a critical skill required by paralegals. Using boilerplates and editable forms will likely get the job done, but stepping outside of the template, gaining advanced document drafting abilities and understanding when (and how) to use them has the potential to make or break your attorney's case, reduce issues at trial and save your attorney and clients precious time and money. This comprehensive, engaging legal guide will teach you, step by step, the key elements of drafting legal documents with real-world examples, sample papers and case studies.
