Session 7: Basics of Judicial Decision Writing
 

May 24, 2022
Online

OBA PROGRAM | 12:00 PM to 1:30 PM (ET)

This program is the seventh in a series of eight programs that make up the Foundations in Judicial Competencies Certificate Program.

The seventh session of the OBA’s Foundations in Judicial Competencies Certificate Program, explores the basics of judicial decision writing.

Judicial decision writing is a highly developed craft which varies among justices. Judgement should be fair, clearly written, and accurately outline the relevant facts, applicable rules of law and provide a detailed analysis of its reasons for the conclusions reached. However, there are other elements which are outside of this basic framework.

Our distinguished panel will share their personal approaches to decision writing and provide insight into their own writing style and technique. They will also provide their unique perspective on best practices and useful supports which help them build on perfecting this craft.
