Overview

The\Redbook:A Manual on Legal Style / Edition 2

This book provides a comprehensive guide to the essential rules of legal writing. Unlike most style or grammar guides, it focuses on the special needs of legal writers, answering a wide spectrum of questions about grammar and style — both rules and exceptions. It also gives detailed, authoritative advice on punctuation, capitalization, spelling, footnotes, and citations, with illustrations in legal context. Designed for law students, law professors, practicing lawyers, and judges, the work emphasizes the ways in which legal writing differs from other styles of technical writing. Its how-to sections deal with editing and proofreading, numbers and symbols, and overall document design. Features:
• Cautions on use of 500 stuffy phrases and needless legalisms, along with their everyday English translations
• Details rules for 800 words with required prepositions in certain contexts
• Explains the correct usage of more than 1,000 words that are often troublesome to legal writers
• Gives tips on preparing briefs and other court documents, opinion letters and demand letters, research memos, and contracts
• Provides model documents of all types of legal documents and pleadings Reviews 200 terms of art that take on new meanings in legal contexts
