One of my students, Drew Walgreen, recommended this article by Bryan A. Garner, published originally in the Michigan Bar Journal. Bryan Garner, if you haven’t already heard, is a noted legal writing specialist and author who has written books such as Legal Writing in Plain English. This article focuses on twenty common mistakes lawyers make when editing sentences. I like that the article gives an example of each mistake and the corrected version.
