Typography – fonts and sizes

Are you certain your pleading is prepared using the correct font and size?  If not, check out a Matthew Butterick’s website: http://typographyforlawyers.com/court-rules-about-typography.html.  In addition to being supremely useful, it is occasionally witty (e.g. “Alabama Appellate: To paraphrase Henry Ford, you can use any font or size as long as it’s Courier New, 13 point. Alabama R. App. P. 32(a)(7).”)

Butterick has expanded his expertise into a book, Typography for Lawyers, released by Jones McClure Publishing.  The book includes information about hyphens and dashes, point size, key commands for Windows, Mac, and HTML, and other information that you don’t need until you desperately need it.
