The Lawyer's Editing Manual
$19.95 In stock:
The legal writer’s ability to communicate to the reader directly and clearly is guided not just by 'correct' prose, but by stylistic conventions that further its effectiveness. The Lawyer’s Editing Manual thus includes advice on unambiguous word choice and modifier placement, conciseness, sentence and paragraph structure, and effective transitions. The manual ends with conventions inspired less by consensus than by the reader’s reliance on consistency, such as whether and what to capitalize or how to treat abbreviations, symbols, and lists. For these, it matters less what the writer or editor chooses to do than that the choice be consistently applied: such details should never distract from the sense of what is being written.
