Dr. Robin Barrow-Nichols to Present a Becker Seminar on the Plain Writing Act of 2010

Dr. Robin Barrow-Nichols, Senior Lecturer in English, will present a Becker Seminar for the Chancellor’s Honors Program on January 30, 2018. She will explain the Plain Writing Act of 2010, which requires federal agencies to use clear and concise language that a public audience can readily understand and apply. From tax codes to immigration law, plain language saves money and preserves individuals’ legal rights. This event will also include a hands-on component in which students practice clarifying their own prose. Attendance is limited to CHP students.
