Catching up w/LACBA

The December issue of LACBA's LA Lawyer has some great appellate articles:

First, pages 12-13 has an interview with retired Justice Ming Chin, which concludes like this:

A mutual friend wanted you to ask me about my name. I am the youngest of eight children. My brothers and sisters’ names are: Mary, George, Joe, Betty, Jack, Jeanne, and Tom. I have no idea where Ming came from, but I do know that all of them were given two names—one in English and one in Chinese. I was only given Ming.

Second, pages 20-25 to has The 33 Steps: Postgraduate Legal Writing, by appellate specialist Steve Katz.
