Look for a list of upcoming Writing to Win courses here.
This seminar will focus on how to persuade judges – by thinking strategically when you write. About 100 pages of materials will be distributed. The State Bar has approved this program for three CLE credits.
We’ll discuss strategic principles and examine how they apply to real-life examples. This should help you win your demurrers, motions for summary judgment, motions in limine, and the like.
This is not like other writing courses. It’s about substance – not form. It’s designed to change your way of thinking about how to convince judges – and to get your creative juices flowing.

“Mr. Moskovitz’s writing seminar is not only informative and practical, but also a breath of fresh air from the typical, sterile continuing education programs. Mr. Moskovitz provides useful, colorful personal anecdotes with each topic, and also has carefully designed exercises that demonstrate his writing techniques. I use many of Mr. Moskovitz’s writing techniques daily. The increased effectiveness in my writing has improved my ability to negotiate with opposing counsel and increased my chances of persuading judges to rule in my clients’ favor.”
