LAS VEGAS, NV. If you think lawyers' writing has to be confusing and hard to read, think again. On March 10, 2007, at the Rocky Mountain Legal Writing Conference at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas, noted bar exam expert Mary Campbell Gallagher explained her simplified system for legal writing, called Under-Here-Therefore(TM). Her system can help lawyers write more simply and quickly and pass the bar
exam, and it can also help practicing lawyers write clearly.
A nationally-acclaimed speaker and lecturer on legal writing and the bar exam, Dr. Gallagher is the author of Scoring High on Bar Exam Essays: In-depth Strategies and Essay-Writing Practice That Bar Review Courses Don't Offer, now in its third edition. The book teaches her Under-Here-Therefore(TM) system, for legal writing, which she introduced in the first edition (ARCO 1991).
"Under-Here-Therefore(TM) is a set of directions that either law students or practicing lawyers can use to produce good legal writing," says Dr. Gallagher. "It is easier to use than other legal writing systems," she says, "because its foundations are in Aristotelian logic."
