Legal writing, Clarity
Sturm College of Law
Because our words can both facilitate and block communication, they are much like glass in a windowpane. Just as a window helps us see outside, the words can help our readers see our analysis. But first, we must eliminate three main obstructions to the view : 1) mechanical erros, 2) complex wording, and 3) literary devices.
