The legal profession is becoming more demanding. Civil and criminal matters before our courts remain high. Clients now need results, not just talk. Lawyers, not only judges, have a major role to play to make the legal system work better for everyone. Many Nigerian lawyers are now rising up to the challenge by improving their advocacy and writing skills.

At the Brief Writing Masterclass recently held in Lagos, Nigerian lawyers who attended the 3-day training did just that.

The brief-writing masterclass was held 26-28 November 2014 at Sheraton Lagos. It attracted participants from various law firms across the country.

Brief Writing Masterclass was an intensive and highly interactive workshop where advocates learnt how to write winning briefs. The 3-day training made participants appreciate that a winning brief should be luminous not voluminous. Chinua Asuzu the CEO of The Write House facilitated the training.

The participants were happy they attended the training. Some of the participants confirmed the training impacted on them, and would make changes in the way they prepare briefs.

At the end of the workshop, The Write House presented certificates to the participants.
