I don’t normally get excited about receiving subscription email newsletters. The one exception is when I see a Legal Writing Pro newsletter in my inbox. The newsletter is prepared by Ross Guberman and you can subscribe to it here.

Guberman is a genuis at explaining the art of writing because his explanations are clear and he uses real-world examples from some of the best appellate litigators in the country.

In his latest newsletter, Guberman covers Wal-Mart v. Dukes, and specifically, the Petitioner’s Brief prepared by Gibson, Dunn & Crutcher lawyers Theodore Boutrous and Ted Olson.

He provides six objects for praise and finds six objects to critique. You can read his laud and lambast of the Bourtrous brief  here and here.

Guberman’s newsletters should be required reading in law school and CLE. They provide vivid examples on how to improve your writing–a goal we should all pursue.

If you want to learn how to write like Supreme Court Justices, you should check out these great articles from Guberman:
