Course description

Ethics in Legal Writing

Misstating precedent, raising frivolous arguments, and copying and pasting are just a few of the legal writing missteps that can put your license in hot water. And while fairly innocuous autocorrects like sua sponte to sea sponge (five times in one brief) may only lead to public embarrassment - sanctions, suspension, or disbarment are not off the table for some of the bigger violations. Learn how to draft and edit in accordance with the ethical norms that apply to legal writing.
