About The Lawyer’s Style Guide

Clarity and precision in legal writing is an essential skill in the practise and study of law. This book offers a straightforward, practical guide to effective legal usage from a world-leading expert.

The book is thoughtfully structured to enhance understanding around the elements of good legal writing and its most effective use. It catalogues existing legal usage, topic by topic, phrase by phrase, word by word. It then scrutinises each use, suggesting the best usage.

Entries are arranged alphabetically and cover 3 broad areas: legal concepts; practical usage; and words and phrases. Each opens with a clear definition of the term, followed by examples of how the entry is commonly used. Entries also cover grammatical questions such as the best use of abbreviations and punctuation.

With an emphasis on technical effectiveness and understanding, it is required reading for all those engaged in the practise and study of law.
