This one-day technical report writing course will ensure delegates fully understand what is involved in writing a technical report. They will consider the content of reports by considering the source and weight of evidence to be included, and learning to distinguish between facts, inferences and opinions. They will also consider the process of report writing, including grammar, layout, format and style. They will receive a model format which can be adapted to suit the field and context that is required. Delegates are required to bring a copy of a final report from a completed case. They will receive feedback on their report from an experienced lawyer trainer and from the other delegates.
Key Learning Points:
- How to identify the issues and the facts, and the source and weight of those facts
- Appropriate grammar, layout, format and style
- Expressing an opinion on the issues
- Pitching the language of the report at the right level
- Dealing with exhibits, photos, digital evidence and other graphics
- Developing an objective and critical eye in relation to your report writing
- Developing a standard template for report writing
Who should attend this training course and why?
Often reports are written in a format or style that makes them difficult to read so that their impact is lost. Many reports fail to identify and deal with the issues in the case. Technical Report Writing allows both new and experienced report writers to look at how they are writing reports. It includes analysing style, grammar and layout, and aims to improve the standards of their report writing.
