Whether you like it or not, people judge your professionalism by how your legal documents look, as much as what they say. If you’re someone who notices the little things, who cares about details, and who wants to make a good first impression, then this is the session for you. Typography is about more than just fonts; it’s about effectively using white space, headings, tables, styles, and typefaces to make your documents more visually appealing, which translates to being easier to read, and by default, more persuasive. In just one hour, you can learn enough typography essentials to put yourself at the head of the pack, and have the sharpest looking legal documents in your county or district.
