Legal writing

Legal writing will be the bane of my existence. I’ve always loved writing and writing papers was always very easy for me. This week, we got our first law school writing assignment: a memo. Memos are fairly standard in the legal world from what I understand and that’s fine, it’s not like they are extremely difficult to write. But good gracious, I hate legal writing. I have a compulsive urge to add words to make it flow and sound like the pretty English paper’s I used to write. Legal writing is very “no bullshit” writing and the more concise you can be while getting the point across the better. I sincerely hope this legal writing thing gets easier so I go. Until then, here’s the kitten I’m absolutely DYING to get!
