Incomprehensibilty

Do you find that as the "final brief" deadline approaches, first-year students at your school become [more] frenzied?  Do they blow off classes?  Do they stay up all night writing, rewriting, and drinking way too much coffee?

This is not a good thing.

However, neither is taking the first-year legal writing class too lightly either.  The practice of law begins now.  Practice ... during these few years of law school ... is important. San_antonio_bankruptcy_court

Here is a recent (February 2006) example of what happens when students (apparently) don't pay enough attention to their legal writing class.  See King Order.  Be sure to read the footnote.

Thanks to Jon Tonsing for bringing this order to my attention.  (Note: Jon is not involved in the litigation that spawned this order.)   (djt)
