recommended reading

If you are from a generation that never learned to diagram sentences, memorize Latin declensions, or see the difference between a gerund and gerundive, you may find helpful C. Edward Good's book Mightier Than the Sword:  Powerful Writing in the Legal Profession.  This book does not explain grammar just so you can get it right, rather it explains how to use grammar to make your legal writing more effective.  It is an easy read, and it is carefully geared to the needs of lawyers and law students.  And it is full of wonderful examples.  Indeed, references to Willie Nelson and Justice Robert H. Jackson appear on the same page. (spl)
