Its not enough to summarize. You must summarize in a way that every conceivable reader—not just the assigning lawyer—can understand. So dont write your issue this way: "Whether Goliad can take a tax deduction on the rent-free space granted to Davidoff under I.R.C. § 170(f)(3)?" Thats incomprehensible to most readers because its too abstract and it assumes insider knowledge. Also, it doesnt show any mastery of the problem.
A common shortcoming of green or hurried researchers, especially when a project is slightly overdue, is to turn in an interim draft in the hope of getting preliminary feedback. That can be ruinous. What busy supervisor wants to read serial drafts? Besides, you should never turn in tentative work—its better to be a little late than wrong. That goes for turning in projects to impatient clients as well. But keep your supervisor (and, if warranted, your client) updated on the status of your work.
The structure is important, Hill says. “In order for our logical syllogism or rule-based reasoning to work, the legal writer needs to prove or provide all of the rules and sub-rules and any exceptions, along with any case exceptions before applying the law to the facts of your case and making any comparisons to precedent.” Judges and other legal readers do not like surprises, she says. “They do not want you to include new law in the application section or any exceptions to the rule after you start applying that rule to your facts. So this form will give the reader comfort and confidence.”
