In law school, you will spend a lot of time discussing the meaning of a singular word or placement of a comma.\u003C\/p\u003E\n\u003Cp\u003EIt is also true that sometimes there is more than one way to say something, or multiple phrases may mean essentially the same thing. It can be tricky to hear both that every punctuation mark and word matters, and that you must be nimble enough to recognize when two sources are talking about the same concept in different terms. This lesson is designed to show you some examples both of precision, and of when two things essentially mean the same thing.\u003C\/p\u003E\n\u003Ch3\u003ELearning Outcomes\u003C\/h3\u003E\n\u003Cp\u003EOn completion of the lesson, the student will be able to:\u003Cbr \/\u003E\n1.
