"All the careful strategy in the world will be of no assistance to you unless you write clearly and forcefully. And clarity and power are above all the fruit of simplicity."
– Hon. Irving R. Kaufman
That's exactly why we have created four webinars hosted by Ed Good. We strongly recommend watching all four to learn how to make your legal writing more concise, more compelling, and more persuasive.
C. Edward Good developed Grammar.com, a website just for writers, and wrote A Grammar Book for You and I, Oops, Me! He was graduated cum laude by the University of North Carolina. He continued his studies at the University of Virginia School of Law, receiving his J.D. degree in 1971. Ed accepted a general faculty appointment as Director of Legal Writing at Virginia Law School in 1975. In 1977, he was selected as one of two Tom C. Clark Judicial Fellows to serve the Supreme Court and the Federal Judicial Center in Washington.
