Drafting Summary

Drafting: 2009-2010 by The City Law School

Drafting legal documents to a high professional standard requires an exacting level of precision and care. Drafting equips the reader with the skills that will enable them to draft with absolute clarity and accuracy. The manual places particular emphasis upon statements of case, both because of their importance in civil litigation, and because they provide the best foundation for the learning process, but all other types of contentious drafting likely to be met in the early years of practice are also examined. Each chapter features numerous examples, and every example is followed by a detailed commentary explaining the draft. The exercises contained throughout the manual encourage the reader to put the drafting skills examined in the manual into practice offering the reader the perfect opportunity to practise and refine their own style of drafting. Drafting is essential reading for all trainee barristers, and is also a useful source of reference for junior practitioners wishing to refresh or refine their drafting skills.
