Survivor-Centered Legal Writing: A Brief Guide
Legal writing is a craft defined by strict expectations and parameters, and all litigators must generally adhere to those expectations. If we do not do so, we serve our clients poorly. But in some cases, the need to center the survivor, to center the humanity of all involved in the story, and to navigate the charged context of immigration proceedings requires nuanced departures from standard legal writing. This legal writing guide provides principles for communication that emphasizes the humanity of immigrant survivors and every person in a client’s story.
