Abstract (type = Abstract)
This article seeks to help attorneys do good deeds for their readers by using the look of the words themselves to create a visually effective textual "picture" in lawyering documents. The arguments and suggestions for better textual visuals are not opinion but are grounded in science. The article examines interdisciplinary research and also looks at accepted practices in graphic design. The research helps explain that principles of document design should not be considered "optional" or rejected as merely subjective speculation. In fact, most of the accepted principles of document design are grounded in scientific study. The article also includes an appendix charting the format rules of the state and federal appellate courts,along with the answer to whether an attorney can employ the synthesized design techniques in a particular jurisdiction. Includes a large appendix of court rules at the time of publication.
