      Clearly awesome.

      Funny. I had an older attorney tell me that you had to earn the right to use “clearly”. If you didn’t truly make it clear, you didn’t get to use it. Good advice.

    3. Mike says:

      Yes, overuse of “clearly” is one of the tell-tale signs of a poorly written brief. “Obviously,” is another overused term. Make it clear and make it obvious.

      i had a prof who said that if you use, “clearly,” “obviously,” or vaguely reference the Bible you’ve got no argument

      I almost subconsciously slipped a “clearly” into my brief. Thanks for the reminder, Courtoons.
