Typography for Laywers.

A basic introduction to typography in a clean, well-organized (and still growing) site.
From the intro:
"Even though the legal profession depends heavily on written expression, legal typography is often poor. Some blame lies with the often strict typographic constraints that legal documents must conform to (e.g. court rules regarding the format of pleadings).
But the rest of the blame lies with lawyers. To be fair, I assume this is for lack of information, not lack of will. This website hopes to help fill that void. There are numerous guides on typography for generalists but I was surprised to find none that were specifically aimed at lawyers. So as the only one of the few typographer-turned-attorneys in America,* I figure that if I don’t do it, nobody will."
