From Library Journal:

In a welcome effort to convince lawyers to streamline their legalese and improve the comprehensibility of their writing, attorney Faulk and Mehler, who has taught at the University of Denver School of Law, have compiled essentially a grammar and stylebook for the legal profession. The thorough table of contents lists the rules of clear writing, diction, tone, grammar, syntax, punctuation, capitalization, paragraph construction, organization, and format. Drawn mostly from actual legal writing, the examples illustrating these principles point out anachronistic lawyerisms and suggest better alternatives. Otherwise, this book would seem somewhat redundant since so many similar handbooks already exist, such as Strunk and White's classic Elements of Style. A glossary of grammatical terms and a bibliography of books and articles on legal writing conclude the text. A possible candidate for law libraries and law offices.
