graphics in legal writing
There is a wonderful article on how to use graphics in legal writing, by Professor Ruth Anne Robbins at Rutgers-Camden. "Painting with print: Incorporating concepts of typographic and layout design into the text of legal writing documents" at 2 J. ALWD 108 (2004), explains how a lawyer's written communication can be enhanced by understanding the graphic effects that can be used in a page of text. The article also explains how to incorporate charts, graphs, and other visuals in a way that will aid the legal reader, including courts, and not be distracting. (spl)
