Professional Writing for Lawyers was originally designed to complement Richard Wydick’s Plain English for Lawyers, but also can be used as a stand-alone legal writing text. Readers will learn to approach writing as a process of thinking, outlining, drafting, revising, and editing to produce a final draft. To help the reader understand this process, several examples are rewritten, integrating the principles of plain English that teach the reader to develop a clear, concise, and readable style.
This second edition revises citations and legal references, maintaining the easy to read and quick reference value of the first edition.
