Class Action

Waddell a faculty instructor at advocacy course

Toronto class-action lawyer Margaret Waddell will be a faculty instructor at the 18th Annual Course on Written Advocacy.

The two-day course, held Oct. 17-18, is a joint program of Osgoode Professional Development and The Advocates' Society.

Waddell, a former director of The Advocates’ Society where she was chair of its Subcommittee on Advocacy and Practice, is a member of the planning committee for this year's event.

The Annual Course on Written Advocacy will include expert instruction on how to improve written argument from a team of trial and appellate judges, writing professionals and top legal practitioners, including Waddell, partner at Paliare Roland Rosenberg Rothstein LLP.

It will also feature small, “hands-on” breakout groups with a maximum of eight participants, detailed discussion and critique of each participant’s work, valuable tips on how to improve the precision, strength and persuasiveness of all legal writing. The instruction will also provide advice on how best to engage the reader who counts ? the judge – and give insight from a panel of judges on what works and what to avoid.

Justice Eileen E. Gillese of the Ontario Court of Appeal will deliver the keynote address.

The course will be offered at Osgoode Professional Development's Downtown Toronto Conference Centre.
