Keep It Simple

So you graduated with a fancy law degree and picked up some Latin phrases that you can use to impress dates and pass the Bar (congratulations, by the way).  But guess what, the SEC wants none of it in your filings and it's best left out of your merger agreements, too.  Your clients will thank you.  Young lawyers should download and bind a copy of the SEC's plain language guide and keep it on their shelves.  

If you're of a mind, then maybe you should drop by the Center for Plain Language's symposium today (HT: Felix Salmon).
