Plain Language Training

We facilitate plain language training to help legal professionals in Victoria better connect with the public.

Stay tuned for our 2020/21 training program

We’re in the process of planning our plain language training program for 2020/21 and will share the details with you soon.

Why plain language training?

The law is complex and translating it into plain English can be a struggle. Incomprehensible legal writing can degrade public confidence in the law and can even lead to legal disputes.

Our plain language workshops will teach you the principles of plain language and help you create clear, engaging and easy-to-read pieces of legal writing. Clear writing and communication will not only improve your relationship with the public, it will improve your professional practice.

Workshops are delivered by Bob Milstein of Words & Beyond, a practicing lawyer and plain language expert who understands the demands of legal work.
