Hyperlinks in legal writing

For a while, I’ve realized that I can put a hyperlink in a Word document. But it never occurred to me to use that feature in legal writing, until I read this post by Australian barrister Stephen Warne, in which he describes how he used this feature to link to legal authorities cited in his writing. If you’re sending your client a Word or PDF document with legal citations, there’s no reason not to use this feature to give your client instant access to a cited authority.

Making the link is easy — bloggers do it in their sleep. For instructions, read Stephen’s post or this item from StudentCentral.
