Thinking Like a Writer
Legal writing expert Steve Armstrong shares the key principles for transforming complex legal information into clear prose on the XL Legal Podcast. Steve is the co-author of the seminal legal writing resource – Thinking Like a Writer: A Lawyer’s Guide to Effective Writing and Editing
The main topics we discuss on the podcast are: why lawyers are often criticized for being poor writers; how lawyers can learn to “think like a writer” by internalizing a few key principles rather than memorizing tips, rules, or techniques; and the major impediments to clear legal writing – and how to avoid them. Steve also provides several real-life examples of the principles in action.
