Writing such as documentation of justifications for decisions and/or written materials that may become legal documents challenge writers to use clear language, present only relevant facts and findings, organize materials, and use appropriate grammar and punctuation. Through presentation, discussion, and group activities participants will explore: the use of plain language; recording only actual observations; organizing material; and grammar and punctuation.
