That I, Steve Houchin, of Houston by way of several other locations of the first part, do hereby give, grant, bargain, convey, and quit-claim, all my interest in the following, to wit:

The required completion of an appellate brief for use in Legal Research and Writing II, which I acquired through enrollment in Law School, situated in Houston, Texas, together with all the improvements made, constructed and corrected by me whereon, with all the rents, profits, easements, enjoyments, long suffering and appurtenances thereto in anywise appertaining, unto whomever should desire to sacrifice their sanity for 2 credit hours of the second part, to research and to write and to keep so long as they desire, or until the due date for same comes to pass, without recourse upon teh grantor or endorser.

In testimony whereof, I have hereunto set one finger and raspberry, this 15th day of April, 2005.

Just promise me that, in Texas, they're still not using that old-fashioned, redundant type of legal writing for briefs. Or, better yet, promise me that you won't use that type of writing for your briefs!

I printed it, but my notary was unavailable, so I hope a smiley-face sticker will suffice.

Bookworm -
I copied that from an old quit-claim I found from a prospector who was divorcing his wife (He didn't know any other legal documents and didn't want to get a lawyer, apparently).

I promise I won't use that in my briefs.

Whew! You had me worried. I thought that your law school was trying to corrupt your lucid, interesting writing style. May congratulations on surviving your ordeal, and welcome back to blogging.
