Judge and Professor Gerald Lebovits writes a regular column on legal writing in the New York State Bar Association Journal. His two-part essay on punctuation provides a helpful review and lots of helpful tips, all specifically geared to legal writers:

"Do's, Don'ts, and Maybes: Usage Controversies - Part II"
New York State Bar Journal, Vol. 80, p. 64, July/Aug. 2008
