4 Legal English Podcast | Episode 009
In this episode, we discuss writing memos. We will explain what memos are commonly used for, how lawyers or law firms often used them, tips for writing them, and why you may want to start writing them.
Some reasons you may want to start writing memos:
- Helps you organize your thoughts or arguments;
- Understand the situation better;
- Refresh your recollection later, when you may have forgotten some of the details
- Improve your writing and organization;
- Impress your boss.

Legal Writing Course
We are working on a new Legal Writing course to be offered in 2022.
This course would consist of video lessons, writing assignments, and live review/feedback sessions. Because of the written feedback required for this course, class size will be limited, perhaps to 5-10 students.
Students would learn about the new topics in the classes.
The first few classes would set the scene and introduce students to the course (with some simple assignments but without serious writing assignments). After the initial classes, each class would end with a writing assignment, which the students would work on and submit. Then, there would be a review session, where general comments on the writing would be included, with some feedback for each student, as well as written review would be returned to each student. To improve writing it is important to write, receive feedback, then make corrections on a revised draft, which is what this course would do.
