Write it Rite: Demystifying the Art of LegalSpeak

Florida Bar's Real Property, Probate & Trust Law Section
Speaking Engagement
April 29, 2019

Martin A. Schwartz discussed the art of legal writing and the use of proper English rather than legalese in drafting documents.

A capable legal writer is concise, precise, authoritative or persuasive and clear. Legalese is notorious for complex words and convoluted sentences. “Plain language,” advocated by many legal practitioners is a more effective method of communicating complex ideas. Critically examining legalese and learning the principles of plain language can help to markedly improve legal writing.
