A judge's writing advice

Judge Randy Wilson offers some helpful writing tips in the summer issue of The Advocate. His article, which covers motions to compel, reminds lawyers to make a potentially tedious motion as “lively and persuasive as possible.” Just listing the disputed discovery requests won’t do that. A better motion would begin by explaining the core of the dispute and then categorizing the requests. Judge Wilson’s advice to include a summary and make writing “persuasive and alive” will strengthen other types of legal writing as well.
