The Toronto Lawyers Association (TLA) hosts the Honourable Justice Lorne Sossin, Marco Falco, and Caroline Mandell, as they provide constructive tips and tricks for enhancing written advocacy skills.

The Honourable Justice Lorne Sossin, Marco Falco, and Caroline Mandell discuss the importance of considering the audience, the purpose, and the tone of your writing. They impart practical guidance for pleadings, including how to distinguish between effective and ineffective drafting, and tell your client’s story in the most effective way possible.

The panelists share advice on how best to open and craft compelling factums, explore strategies when approaching factums for appeals, motions, and applications. They also highlight key do's and don'ts to improve your written advocacy, explain how to deal with exhibits, affidavits, notices of motion, appeal, cross motions, and encourage legal practitioners to invest the time needed to master these essential skills.
