The best legal writing book - 0 of 0 people found the following review helpful.The best legal writing book By isecond Highly recommended. I give this book to all my new associates as the best and most accessible guide to writing well. It excellently transfers the rules for good writing to the legal realm.
A useful handbook - 1 of 1 people found the following review helpful.A useful handbook By Moses Muchiri This book is predominantly meant for the American reader as it is based on American legal forms of practice. But after going through it severally, I must recommend it for all lawyers especially of the common law practice domain. The emphasis on simplicity in legal expression and the useful examples on how to draft the usual memoranda, correspondence, briefs, opinions will be very useful not just to the younger lawyers hoping to avoid the common and frequent mistakes, but also to senior lawyers. It adds to the finer strokes of the practice.
Excellent guide to legal writing and argumentation. - 7 of 7 people found the following review helpful.Excellent guide to legal writing and argumentation. By Jerry Saperstein I am not a lawyer - but my clients and prospects are. Thus I receive many pleadings and briefs and not infrequently prepare background papers on various aspects of technology that will be incorporated in one way or another into briefs and memoranda. I also write for an audience of lawyers. So, from time to time, I will read books on legal writing in order to understand what my clients face and to be better able to communicate with them. Many books on legal writing are boring and, frankly, don't do a good job at explaining the mechanism of communicating. "Effective Lawyering", on the other hand, is a little gem. It bills itself as "A checklist approach to legal writing and oral argument". And that is precisely what it is. In seven chapters (six of them devoted to writing and one to preparing for oral argument), the authors crisply distill the essence of legal writing and argumentation. The authors claim their book is intended for those who have "learned or are learning the basics of legal writing, and at most needs only reminding of what they [the basics] are". The first part of each chapter is a discussion of various does-and-don'ts, such as (in the first chapte), grammar, warning not to use cliches and so on. Then there is the checklist. Commonsense things, but often forgotten in the midst of deadlines - and that is the beauty of this little book. It's like a coach going over the play with you one last time. While definitely geared toward lawyers, the book will serve well in a number of other roles, such as determining the skills of your own lawyer. If a lawyer can't write so that you understand their output, you may have a problem. Many of the checklist items are appropriate to any form of persuasive writing. Overall, this is an excellent little reference on legal writing or any form of writing that is intended to persuade and convince the logical reader of the rightness of your views.Jerry
