Writing and Legal Writers (Readers too) Update


The following legal writing blog has come to my attention: Set in Style.

The number of legal writing blogs and web sites is growing. Take a look at Set in Style’s sidebars to see just how many. Here is another good place to turn, Evan Schaeffer’s legal-writing posts.

There is money (and winning) in good (legal) writing and there is joy. Of course, for those law students who have not yet been initiated, there is also Fred Rodell, who wrote: “There are two things wrong with almost all legal writing. One is its style. The other is its content.”

On My Bookshelf this month: All the Shah’s Men, The Great Influenza, and Schulz. All are wonderful, and oh so different, but I’m reading as fast as I can – library due dates are nigh. But my favorite commute and bedtime book is Geography of Bliss. Not only is it gentle on a tired brain and funny, but it doesn’t weigh much, a boon to an overburdened commuter. Authors just don’t stop to think about that, do they? Well they should, yes they should.
