    Elsa Marshall has spent the last 20 years expanding legal aid’s statewide impact through her work as the coordinator for the Education for Justice Program. Much of that work has been in developing and updating an impressive library of hundreds of plain language self-help materials for MMLA and LawHelpMN.org.

Session Agenda:
Can your clients understand everything you’ve written in that last letter? You know the fact sheet you put together for your outreach event is legally correct, but can someone without legal training make sense of it? Elsa Marshall specializes in communicating complex legal topics in easily understandable language. Join her as she shares her top tips for making your client communications easy to understand and translating legal jargon into plain English.

CLE: 1.0 hour of Standard Minnesota CLE Credit will be applied for.
