Memory a tad bit foggy about grammar or punctuation rules? Consult the index in Bryan Garner, The Redbook: A Manual on Legal Style. Style manuals set the “standards” for writing. The manuals answer questions about punctuation, word usage, capitalization, italics, underling, document design, plurals, possessives, and other writing conventions. Multiple copies of The Redbook are available at the Circulation Desk.
Last but not least, if editing is not your forte use the Student Self-Editing Checklist for Law School Papers, Notes and Comments.
Good luck researching and writing!
