Like the Strunk and White book of similar name, The Elements of Legal Style offers authoritative, down-to-earth, and often witty advice on a broad array of writing concerns, from basic grammatical rules to enhancing clarity, force, and persuasivenss. Unlike Strunk and White, it is written for lawyers, law students, judges and their law clerks - for anyone who writes in and about the law.

With broad experience as a practitioner, academic, and writing consultant, Bryan Garner knows first hand where legal writing goes wrong, and he pays particular attention to these trouble spots. He not only reveals how and why lawyers spill their words verbosely, he also memorably shows how laywers can clean up their spills. In a section on commonly misused words in law, Garner crisply guides readers through the hazards of legal wordchoice.

For anyone who practices legal writing, The Elements of Legal Style is an invaluable reference to have by one's fingertips, a reference that you will refer to again and again.
