In the November 2012 issue of the Kentucky Bench and Bar Journal, Kristin Hazelwood of the University of Kentucky offers advice for writing e-mails. Her article, titled E-Mails to Clients: Avoiding Missteps, presents guidelines for messages to clients. But her advice will be helpful for law students who write e-mails in other settings. Among the suggestions students will want to consider is whether e-mail is an appropriate medium for sensitive information. Students should also consider the guideline to double-check the list of addresses so the message does not go to unintended recipients.
