Academic Success Tip - Proofreading (a reminder)
Posted November 4th, 2010 by Kimberly K. Ballard
A law paper requires diligent editing to make sure it is as well written and clear as possible. Avoid long, complicated sentences and fancy or superfluous language to help readers understand the covered issues quickly and accurately. Be sure to reserve time to carefully edit your work product. Careful proofreading is particularly important in legal writing. Spelling, punctuation, citation, or grammatical errors in a document submitted to the court, opposing counsel, or a client can undermine your credibility as a legal professional.
