The Cardiff University Centre for Language and Communication has made available FuzzyLaw, an online collection of “lay-people’s explanations of legal terms.” Here is the description from the project’s Website: FuzzyLaw has gathered explanations of legal terms from members of the public in order to get a sense of what the ‘person on the street’ has in mind when they think of a legal term. By making lay-people’s explanations of legal terms available to… [read post]

Spread the Word to End the Word is an ongoing effort by Special Olympics & Best Buddies to raise the consciousness of society about the dehumanizing and hurtful effects of the R-word (“retard(ed)” and encourage people to pledge to stop using the R-word. Respectful and inclusive language is essential to the movement for the dignity and humanity of people with intellectual disabilities. However, much of society does not recognize the hurtful, dehumanizing and exclusive effects of the… [read post]

Later this year, lawyers with Lexis subscriptions and Microsoft Office will be able to use Lexis within the comfy confines of Microsoft Word and other applications. The integration should allow attorneys to stay within one program when drafting briefs, rather than clicking back and forth. If you use Word and Lexis, the integration will make life easier. Clicking back and forth between various programs can be a pain. Be able to click on a case in a brief and have the full version pull up, or having… [read post]

This post is not about candy bars or thoughts about whether the cross-section of a candy bar may function as a trademark, for that, see here. This brief post is about a 100 Grand Super Size thank you to all of our readers, those who submit comments, those who offer suggestions, those who follow us on Twitter, our guest bloggers, and especially, all of you who spread the word about DuetsBlog in so many ways.

Karen Suhaka of LegiNation has posted How long is too long? Not long enough? Just right?, at BillTrack50 Political Eye Candy. The post shows mean, median, and maximum word counts for legislative bills in the 50 U.S. states, with maps. Ms. Sukaha describes her method for producing the word-count statistics and maps as follows: I use a commercial mapping package. The counts are just done in SQL, since I’ve parsed all the bills into XML. HT @BillTrack50 (here and here) and @Smoodle Filed under:… [read post]

By Jessica Orquina It’s been three weeks since we launched Six Words for the Planet with SMITH Magazine and I’ve been delighted how many people shared their stories.

George Sosa Sweetest tweets still come from birds. Melesha Owen Earth Day may have gone by, but our collaboration with SMITH Magazine continues. I encourage each one of you… [read post]

I saw a movie last weekend about an ethnic restaurant on the brink of bankruptcy. The manager met a quirky man, driving a taxi, who claimed to have been a great chef in the old country. Desperate to turn things around, he hired the man and crossed his fingers. Turns out the chef really was good and business started to pick up. One customer, an older woman, told the manager she loved the food and would tell everyone about the restaurant. Her husband added, “. . .and she knows… [read post]

When he started his solo practice, Bryan Sims knew he wanted a paperless firm: “I didn’t want to pay for storage,” he recalls. At ABA TECHSHOW 2014, Sims said a change of attitude is the key to a paperless path: “The first step is to change your idea of what it is to work. Work isn’t generating paper, it’s generating documents. Nobody generates documents on a piece of paper anymore, and your work product is information you store on a computer — not on… [read post]

If to err is human, then writing a blog is a most human endeavor. Tight deadlines and late-night drafting sessions ensure that mistakes infiltrate even carefully composed posts. It is a painful exercise for me to review old posts and see the errors that managed to make it onto my site.   In my best efforts to try to avoid mistakes, I try to read my draft posts very carefully (or as carefully as I am able at the late hours at which I am usually composing my posts). Over time, I have developed… [read post]

One of my frustrations in Word has been how to copy just the text in a specific column in a multi-column layout in Word. I am frustrated no longer: I came across the Legal Office Guru blog and a great tip on Copying vertical columns of text in Word. Keep reading to find out how easy this is and if you’re like me, you’ll probably be slapping yourself on your forehead as this task is much too easy for having not known about it. [read post]

Many of you apparently downloaded and are enjoying the MicroLaw Word 2010 QuickTask Bar I wrote about and made available earlier this month (click here for download info). Enough readers asked for our Word 2007 version so I decided to make it available as well. It is identical to the Word 2010 QuickTask Bar, but the installation process is completely different – it’s described in the README FIRST document you’ll find in the Dropbox folder which you can access here. As with the Word 2010… [read post]

Neil Squillante of Technolawyer fame reminded me that I had posted previously about best use of Word styles (in a Word 2007 context, but applicable to 2010 as well). The article is here and I think you’ll still find it quite useful. Our earlier post from last week about styles is here. Thanks Neil for the heads up!

MillerCoors is currently running this Lite Beer ad, promoting the limited edition original can, and taking credit for inventing the light beer category, way back in 1973. It is a great reminder that despite Miller’s determined and long-protracted litigation over its attempt to own the word LITE as a trademark for beer, in the end, it was unsuccessful because the misspelled word LITE was found generic — along with the correctly-spelled word LIGHT — for a type or category… [read post]
