Drafting Pleadings: As a paralegal new to the profession, you have successfully completed your education. How do you effectively transition into the workplace if you have little or no law office experience? Drafting Pleadings is an addition to the Paralegal Core Competency Series launched in May/June 2016 intended to provide a foundation for a successful transition into the workplace.

You will learn the purpose and importance of pleadings, what to consider before drafting pleadings, general drafting guidelines and the risks associated with poorly drafted pleadings. This course will provide you with an understanding of the rules regarding pleadings and provide practical tips to drafting clear and effective pleadings which are essential in a litigation practice.
