Experienced lawyers sometimes criticize the writing of younger lawyers. It’s common. Being a writing teacher, I hear it a lot. But if you criticize the writing of others, especially younger lawyers, be careful. Make sure your own writing is up to high standards.
Today I read some writing by a lawyer I know, a lawyer who has criticized the writing of younger lawyers. What I read today had 10 mistakes in it—7 if you don’t count duplicates.
So be careful. This isn’t the first time I’ve posted about this.
