Product description

Review

"This magnificent book explains every major principle of plain legal writing in a way that no other book has ever done. Based on years of Garner's research and teaching, this book elevates the standard of what a legal-writing text can and should be. Get a copy for every law student, lawyer, and legislator that you know."--Mark E. Wojcik, John Marshall Law School

The importance of improving writing skills . . . is also the central theme of one of my favourite books of the year: Garner s Legal Writing in Plain English. Much more exciting than the title suggests, it leads the reader through a series of observations and exercises to develop a simple, clear and elegant writing style. My only regret is that it is written for a US market with corresponding examples. There is surely a need for a UK version, which should routinely be given to all law students, trainees and even some senior partners. --Sarah Greer "Times Higher Education Textbook Guide (UK) ""
