Legal Writing: A Competency-Based Approach presents a novel approach in learning the art of writing in the fi eld of law. It is a reference text not only for law students seeking to improve their competencies in drafting legal materials but also for lawyers needing to further hone their craft. It presents a step-by-step guide in writing pleadings, memoranda, opinion letters and in general, how to argue using the law. It also provides them with parallel examples of what are considered ‘poor’ and ‘good’ writing styles.

Legal writing is all about simplicity, clarity and persuasiveness. One would not become less of a lawyer for being understandable. It is a lawyer’s distinction to be able to present his position clearly, and therefore persuasively, in his writing. Language and logic are the raw materials of the profession, not discounting, of course, ethics.

Gone are the days of kilometric sentences, redundancies ad nauseam, and ambiguities meant to confound rather than communicate. Pompous and ponderous abstractions are no longer in vogue. The trend in international legal practice is for more terse, plain and down to earth presentation of legal ideas that are ‘graspable’ to both layman and legal professional. As Judge Learned Hand famously said: ‘the language of the law must not be foreign to the ears of those who are to obey it.’ This is what the book is about.
