Now we all come across this common problem – writing a legal essay and finding the result a bit dull, right? Don’t worry, fortunately there’s a workshop on Monday 16th (first day of ILW) in which, drawn from methods used by fiction authors, you’ll be taught how to really create a fully characterised argument, resulting in strong, stand-out writing being produced.
