In today’s sophisticated law practice, lawyers and legal professionals have a challenging twin- task: that of addressing complex subject matter and producing cogent written work with which the reader can connect without getting lost in the legalese. The Art of Legal Writing: Practicing Lawyers to Successful Professionals discusses the interplay between the fundamentals and specific techniques of legal writing and editing. The book covers linguistic and stylistic tools of contract drafting, the art of written advocacy, and writing for businesses in the in-house practice. It also examines the role of technology in legal research and how it is disrupting the practice of law. Techniques of editing and proofreading are the other key takeaways of the book. Diverse set of examples are incorporated throughout the narrative to illustrate the application of various principles and techniques.
The book will be valuable for lawyers (litigation and corporate), in-house legal counsels, law students and academicians.
