Professor George Gopen, an English Professor at Duke University and the 2011 recipient of the Legal Writing Institute's Golden Pen Award, has published a short article in Law Practice Magazine about five times when you should use the passive voice.  Go on.  Have a look.  We know you want to. Otherwise you have to go back to grading papers.
