I've attended several seminars on judgment writing by Prof. Raymond. They were the best seminars on any topic of the many I have attended. I was persuaded not only that judgments could be well written, but should be. The courses clearly established the benefits of good writing. And they taught us how to make a start. This seminar went way beyond the usual 'plain English' writing course; it showed me how critical logical structure and organization are to effective legal writing.
