I know a few good ones, but writing your own letter is TTT and I don't want to be a part of it.

Anna Ivey describes the qualities of a strong letter of recommendation (Chapter 4) and includes "good" and "bad" examples (Appendix C) in her book The Ivey Guide to Law School Admissions (http://books.google.com/books?id=M6Ujyi ... =anna+ivey).
