In this second edition, Professor Weinhofen continues his emphasis upon the need for precision, conciseness, simplicity and clarity. The changes made in the second edition are mostly additions. A section has been added on writing law school and bar examinations. The material on sentence structure and organization has been amplified. More attention has been given to drafting principles. The book is equally suited to use in courses that concentrate on brief-writing, to those that emphasize formal legal documents, or to those that concentrate on the writing of memoranda or papers similar to law review comments.
