ABSTRACT
The author discusses the importance of writing well for law students and lawyers. She believes that readers associate a person's writing skills to his or her ability to do something well. She observes that many law students do not prioritize the need to learn better writing skills. She argues that law school is the only chance law students have in receiving formal legal-writing instruction. She suggests for law students to seek feedback and ask questions about their writing.
