American Casebook Series


Drafting legal contracts, instruments, or legislation is neither a secret order into which one must be initiated nor a skill acquired by osmosis from the label "attorney-at-law" on the desk, say Kuney and Looper. They explain the process, techniques, and forms of expression used in drafted documents, focusing on how to draft private-law documents and legislation, rather than on the details of the substantive law that the drafter must also consider. Their topics include a philosophy of drafting, drafting within the law, choosing the right concept, drafting style and usage, and reviewing and revising drafted documents.
