Summary
This edition includes expanded material on the techniques for achieving a style that is both clear and legally sound. It also includes new material on the challenges and merits of drafting in plain language, and provides many before-and-after examples to help both practising lawyers and students develop key drafting skills. It takes a genuinely international approach, dealing with the principles for clear, effective legal drafting in all countries where English is the language of law. In doing so, it draws on case law and statutes from countries as diverse as England, Australia, New Zealand, the United States, Canada, Ireland, India, Malaysia, Singapore and Hong Kong
