Listen to Your Writing Professor 

Ethicalesq. points out an expensive lesson a judge handed out to an attorney who was polished in the courtroom yet careless in his writing.

Use your spellchecker, look for errors the spellchecker won't find (statue vs. statute), and have at least one other person look over your work at least once. Leave time to fix your errors. And as I painfully learned last month, don't put an unprotected can of Red Bull in the same bag as the paperwork you're about to turn in.
