Plain Language Legal Writing

The Canadian Bar Association's PracticeLink has just published its third in a series of articles on plain language in legal writing: Mastering Modern Legal Correspondence.

The article provides a checklist for clear writing:
  • Clarify your purpose
  • Consider your reader
  • Write complete and accurate business letters
  • Organize the letter for highest impact
  • Choose your words thoughtfully
  • Use modern formats
  • Present good news and bad news keeping the psychology of readers in mind
