Typography for Lawyers, Second Edition

There is a strange dichotomy with lawyers and documents. We spend much of our time generating documents and slaving over every word and comma. Yet the documents themselves often look like a blob of Times New Roman mush. Matthew Butterick started his own personal crusade years ago to get lawyers thinking about typography. 

Recently Matthew released the second edition of his book and it’s really great. The new version is full of stylistic and technical advice. I wish every lawyer and judge would buy a copy and think about implementing Matthew’s ideas. If you are in the legal industry, you really should read this book.
