Legal Writing: A Competency-Based Approach


New product

During the seven years which have elapsed since the publication of the first edition, the demand is now such as to justify the coming up of a revised and expanded edition. The second edition retains the tepby step, competency-based format of the original, providing parallel examples of what are considered ‘poor’ and ‘good’ writing styles.

In addition, a new section on Common Latin Terms is added in Chapter VIII in recognition of the fact that the language of the law has certain features that make it different from everyday English. In particular, certain Latin words and phrases have become part of Legal Language, hence necessary for law students and practitioners to know.

Also, an entire chapter (Chapter XIV) on effective use of prepositions has been added, the rationale being that the use of prepositions is usually a difficult terrain for non-native English speakers to master.

The preparation of the second edition is co-authored by Mr. David Mockon, MSE, whose expertise in teaching English is among the best in the field.
