helpful editing advice

If you scroll down Scott Fruehwald's SSRN page, you'll see a number of practical articles that are actually lessons on legal writing and editing.  The topics include editing for wordiness, active and passive sentences, paragraphing, sentence structure, emphasis, and clarity.  Each lesson includes exercises to help the reader apply the information right away, so these articles can be very helpful for students or lawyers who need help with a particular topic.  (You'll also see some intriguing other titles that Scott has authored.)
