Made You Look- The Ethics of Using Clickbait-style Headings and 3 Insights That Could Change Your Legal Writing Forever

Event Description

Registration closes on 01/05. To register after that, please email Kara at

Presentation Description:

Did I get your attention with that title? Are you curious to learn more? Sensational or “clickbait” headlines have that effect: they draw interest and prompt a reader to fill the “curiosity gap” left by the headline, sometimes using colorful language to heighten the intrigue. This CLE will delve into what makes a strong heading in legal writing, through comparisons to clickbait headings. The presentation will introduce the concept of a hybrid "curiosity heading" and discuss ethical considerations when drafting headings.
