Incorporating the useful suggestions of attorneys who relied on the previous edition, this new 3rd Edition gives you the specialised knowledge and techniques to draft clear and compelling legal documents - no matter how complicated the issues involved. Hailed as 'the best book ever written on legal writing' by practising attorney and former Marine Corps Staff Judge Advocate Theodore Hess, the book includes exercises, examples, and highlighted drafting do's and don'ts to help you to: craft introductions that activate readers' minds from the start; develop a writing persona that's credible, professional, and engaging; write strong, streamlined sentences that bring subjects into clear focus; create logically-linked paragraphs that carry readers forward smoothly; and, creak up information stylistically and graphically to enhance comprehension.
This book also helps you to use syntax, verbs, and varied sentence lengths to keep readers' attention; instil writing with added grace, energy, character, and imagination; communicate directly with different audiences, including clients, associates, senior lawyers, and judges; and, identify drafting problems, understand their causes, and find the right editorial solutions. The book shows you how to blend reason and emotion, detail and simplicity, and concrete language and metaphors to ensure that your legal writing does full justice to your legal thinking.
