    New Column Solves Vexing Legal Writing Issues

    Through this new column, the legal writing faculty at Marquette University Law School and other contributors will help solve your vexing legal writing questions with practical guidance. Topics may range from broader issues, such as dispelling grammar myths and the value of revision, to more narrow topics, such as correctly using commas and other vital punctuation and employing precise words to make your point explicit and powerful. We may even tackle how to cite with authority.

    Although the MU writing faculty will contribute regularly, the Wisconsin Lawyer welcomes columns submitted from other legal writing aficionados. The column will appear at least quarterly. Upcoming topics include dispelling grammar myths, using updated language, writing concisely, and taking time for revision.

    Ask a legal writing expert. We welcome readers’ questions about anything related to legal writing and topic suggestions for future columns. Your question will be answered directly by the MU writing faculty and may appear in a future column. Please send your comments, questions, and topic suggestions to: wislawyer@wisbar.org, subject line: legal writing. – Wisconsin Lawyer editors.
