Law.com picked up a story from aTexas Lawyer Blog (Called "Tex Parte") about a talk that U.S. Supreme Court Associate Justice Antonin Scalia and legal writing expert Bryan Garner gave in Garner's home state of Texas at the annual meeting of its state bar. Among the writing tips Scalia shared was to limit the use of italics. He said that legal writing with lots of italics tends to read “like a high school girl’s diary.” Click here to read more from Tex Parte.
The photos here are not from the event in Texas but from last year's Scribes luncheon during the ABA Annual Meeting in New York. We still do not have any details about this year's Scribes luncheon, except that it will be in Chicago on the Saturday of the ABA Annual Meeting.
