Here are four things I wish I'd know about legal writing. I went to law school thinking law was primarily an oral profession -- that lawyers mostly talked. I was surprised, once I got into practice, at how much writing lawyers did. I wish I'd known that law was a writing profession, that mastering legal writing would take time, that the time demands of practice would hamper improvement, and that there were excellent sources on legal writing available.
