Writing for Lawyers heftetEngelsk, 2009

Beskrivelse

Lawyers think differently from normal people. The key to writing for lawyers is to give them what their specialized mode of thought needs. This is a special skill that every paralegal, law student and young lawyer needs to learn, because writing which is good-or even superb-in other contexts such as literary or commercial will often be bad legal writing. Writing for Lawyers is designed to catapult the beginner off the deck. It is entirely a book of technique, distilled from the lessons that every sharp young lawyer picks up in the early years of practice. Originally published in 1982, Writing for Lawyers became a bestseller more than twice over before going out of print in 1996. It returned to print by popular demand in 2009. The author is a practicing lawyer, trained at one of the nation's leading law firms, whose experience includes five victories in the United States Supreme Court.
