  1. THE ULTIMATE GUIDE TO BEST LEGAL WRITING topsitenet.com/article/516670-the-ultimate-guide-to-best-legal-writing It is natural that after reading the first few lines of the article, the reader will start formulating and assessing the essay. Writing well is a skill that transcends a profession, but it is of topmost necessity and importance as much it is in law and the legal profession. Good writing is especially important for young lawyers as they are just starting their profession as a lawyer. A survey of practicing lawyers found that oral and written communication skills are the basic skills on which the young and budding lawyers are assessed upon. It is obvious and known to all that clear communication or lack of it can make or break your client’s case. So, it’s no surprise that clients will want candidates with superior or ultimate legal writing skills. Good lawyers are those that appreciate the importance of good legal writing and drafting and actively want to implement strategies in order to improve their writing and drafting skills. There are some ways in which you can improve your writing skills and get good in your profession. 1. Provide context:- You might be very eager to begin with your points from the first line itself. But it is considered as good practice to open your paper with one to three lines that act as an introduction and provides context to your argument that will follow. 2. Refer to questions? :- the above give tip is only worth it if it refers back to your question. If that is not related to your question, it is equivalent to not having a context at all. Therefore, you should make sure that you use certain key terms that are related to your context throughout. 3. Specificity:- Be specific about where your essay will be going and what mechanism or reforms you are going to be focusing on. Or whether you will be drawing on any comparative jurisdictions or not? Whether you will be vocal about the theories. 4. Providing a roadmap:- After you have outlined and provided the scope of your argument, it would be best if you provide a roadmap or a brief outline of the structure of your essay to the reader. 1/2

  2. And lastly, 5. Finish with your conclusion:- Students are often shy about putting their own conclusion. But in actuality, they come across as polished and professional. Apart from it, your writing should focus on your best issues. I repeat, do not bury your winning issue under ten other irrelevant issues. Also, do not repeat what you have said before. Many lawyers think that judges won’t get their point unless they repeat it again and again. But make no mistake, they read the briefs carefully and they do get your point in a single time. Also, always use the active voice while legal writing as no other way will point you more quickly to the clear and forceful style. Reading your article loudly can help you identify the errors and basically proofread your own article. It’s an easy way to find and fix your problems. Fleming’s Fundamentals of Law is a firm that offers a good legal writing and drafting training course that helps you to form a good legal essay and score great marks in the exam. 2/2
