    June 15, 2011 – Lawyers are first taught legal writing in law school – in the context of academia, which takes a very strict view of copying and plagiarism. As lawyers, however, the purpose of legal writing is not to demonstrate individual skills; it is to communicate on behalf of clients and advance their goals.

    In this video, Madison attorneys James Peterson and Jennifer Gregor clarify the basic principles of copyright infringement and plagiarism as they apply to the work of lawyers. Read Peterson and Gregor’s in-depth article, Copycat: Plagiarism, Copyright Infringement, & Lawyers, in the June issue of Wisconsin Lawyer™ magazine.
