Working Effectively with Email
Practice Management and Business Skills
CPD Points 1
Email is an essential tool for lawyers, but often causes issues with time management and communication. This course provides practical strategies for lawyers to use email more effectively everyday.
Lawyers use email everyday as an essential part of communication both within their offices and with external parties – clients, the courts or opponents. But lawyers often do not receive much training or guidance on how to use email effectively, which can lead to overwhelming inboxes and unfortunate miscommunications.
This course provides lawyers with practical strategies for working with email more effectively, including:
- time management strategies for managing email;
- techniques for drafting more effective emails that will get the right outcome; and
- pitfalls to avoid when working with email.
Cathryn has over 30 years experience in the legal profession both as a lawyer in private and in-house practice and more recently in running her own successful business in training and coaching.
What Lawyers Say
5.0/5Great advice.I intend to implement all of her advice in my job.
5.0/5Helpful, clear, well-paced.Very helpful and clear presentation. Well paced.
5.0/5Appropriately segmented and easily understood.The course is segmented appropriately so that I was able to easily understand every aspect of preparing an effective email and avoiding a badly drafted email. What appealed to me was that the presented gave reasons why her suggested approaches are good, and why certain common habits have to be avoided in emails. I learnt about the F-pattern (new to me) and realised that I am a writer-centred person and needs to change into a reader-centred person. The presenter's demeanour, tone of voice and words were such that made me to respect her and to be receptive to her teaching. Thanks to the presenter and the LawCPD.com.au.
5.0/5Excellent.Excellent, helpful presentation.
