Overview

In its fourth edition, Wydick’s book stands the test of time, continuing to be used extensively throughout the country. It teaches those in the legal profession how to learn and practice basic techniques of good writing through examples from briefs, statutes, and other legal writings. It also provides practical exercises so that readers may try out their new-found insights. The fourth edition includes a subsection on syntactic ambiguity and a subsection with ideas for drafting statutes, rules, and other formal documents, as well as updated end notes and some new exercises.

Plain English for Lawyers has proven itself to be one of the most essential tools for law students and practicing lawyers alike, and Wydick’s humorous demonstrations of legalese endear this book to both students and faculty. A teacher’s manual is available.
