Since the first edition was published in 2002, The Redbook has established itself as an authoritative, comprehensive, and easily usable manual of legal style.

Written by Bryan A. Garner, with contributions from numerous lawyers and professional legal writers from throughout the US, The Redbook covers everything that mere citation manuals don’t and can’t: punctuation, capitalization, grammar, prose style, and clarity in general. Written in the style of a restatement, the black-letter rules are followed by exhaustive comments and illustrations.

For the third edition the chapters on particular types of documents has been expanded with the addition of new chapters on e-mail messages and legislative drafting, together with a new section on scholarly writing.
