The (new) legal writer, once again, has an excellent post with tips and hints regarding better legal writing. This post features the current issue of Headnotes, the Dallas Bar Association’s newsletter. The entire newsletter has an appellate theme and is packed with tips for appellate trial lawyers and appellate brief writers. To highlight just couple, take a look at the Questions on Quotations section on page 6, by Justice Jim Moseley, on how to effectively use quotations, or the 20 Tips for Writing Shorter Briefs on page 11, by Scott P. Stolley, on how to write your briefs shorter but still compelling. Any thoughts or comments?
