Report Writing Workshop Content

In addition to an overview of report format and content for grand jury reports, each one-day workshop will cover choosing a report style, the role of the investigating and editorial committees, and the procedures and time frames for a report's review, approval, and release. Our team of trainers will share best practice tips on how to write effectively. They will demonstrate the distinctions between facts and findings through group exercises. Attendees will practice developing and evaluating findings and recommendations and critiquing sample reports. A video will be shown to demonstrate how to conduct an exit interview to verify the report's findings.

This workshop and the training materials that will be provided will help grand jurors improve the quality, readability, and effectiveness of their final reports.

The cost for the workshop is $65 per juror.

Each session will start at 9:00 a.m. and end at 4:00 p.m.
