Effective transitions are a challenge – linking the old with the new, working efficiently and effectively, all the while keeping the vision of the future firmly in mind. There is a tendency to rely on techniques that have sufficed in the past, some more successful than others. An effective transition guides the reader, serving as a connection between ideas. The transition may also help the reader to anticipate the ideas that are about to be presented, offering a “signpost” of sorts. Whatever the purpose, the transition provides the coherence, and perhaps even grace, that is otherwise absent in so much legal writing. Humbly, this articles offer you hope for a smooth transition.
