Letters of the Law

Abstract:     
Drafting legal correspondence requires attention to the purpose of the communication, its audience, the message, and the medium. Depending upon the circumstances, a letter or memorandum style may be appropriate, but sometimes oral communication may be preferable. The first sentence of a letter or memo should set forth its purpose. Brevity is especially important in correspondence. The final sentence should summarize the key points or identify the requested action.
