This manual on legal style is free with the course.


"Bryan A. Garner summarizes his philosophy of legal writing as a belief that the best legal style is simple and direct that anyone can learn that style with hard work, that improvement requires abandoning old and meaningless conventions, that what distinguishes effective legal writers is an abiding empathy for the reader."
