I have always been a strong writer. Once I started law school, though, I learned that what once passed for "strong writing" as an undergrad and out in the real world had no relationship to what constitutes "strong writing" in the legal world. After I got my first (devastating) grade on a legal writing assignment, I turned to the law librarian for recommendations. This was it. It saved my life... or at least my GPA. This is now the only writing resource I use, and only wish I had read it before my first attempt at a legal memo!
