This book examines ethical and effective legal writing by providing more than two hundred examples of judges' reactions to errors in lawyers' writing. Updated throughout, the second edition covers errors ranging from serious ethical breaches, like misrepresenting facts, to grammatical and citation errors. The erring lawyers incurred consequences that ranged from disbarment to strong verbal rebukes.

Written by a law professor and former practitioner, the book promotes high standards in legal writing. It is recommended for law school courses as well as for continuing legal education courses, law firms, and individuals interested in effective writing and the soundness of the legal system. Practical exercises are included to help readers improve their writing techniques.

 A teacher's manual is available electronically on a CD or via email.
