Abstract

Complaints about the poor writing skills of law school graduates are nothing new, as attested by this 1980 article on the topic. For those willing to acknowledge the inadequacy of their expository writing skills, the author recommended six books on writing style of particular usefulness to law students and recent graduates. Some have become enduring classics, while others have gone out of print.

Keywords: legal writing
