Ensure that your communications are clear and effective with the second edition of Clarity for Lawyers. Legal writing doesn’t have to be peppered with latin and obscure technical words and phrases. Plain language is the key to successful communications with clients, colleagues and other third parties. It prevents ambiguity and mistakes, saving time and money as well as getting the message across effectively and in an approachable manner.

This second edition has been thoroughly revised, updated and expanded to:-

  • cover the common law rules of interpretation
  • deal with communication by e-mail and websites
  • contain a number of precedents written in plain English, including a simple will, memorandum of association and divorce petition.
The book includes worked examples showing how legalese can be rewritten into plain English.
