Legal Writing and Drafting: Communicating Effectively

You may have the best legal mind in the world but if you can’t explain your thoughts in writing, you won’t go far.

This course gets you thinking about your aims before looking at the principles behind good legal writing and drafting. It then looks at important rules – those which apply to writing, those to drafting and those to both.

If you are tired of seeing your drafts heavily edited by your colleagues or proofreaders, this course will give you both practical, in-detail, and “big picture” tools and rules to get your writing and drafting to a flawless level.


Very Good. This course provides me with guidelines on how to translate legal documents. I find the drafting part especially helpful, as it provides the essential information required for drafting legal documents.

What I like about this course is that it first asks questions before teaching something, and this gets me to want to learn.

I liked a lot of practical examples, availability of simple explanations, your own experience.
