Drafting: 2004/2005 by Inns of Court School of Law
Drafting is one of the most specialist and refined skills that must be mastered by those training for the Bar. A Barrister must not only be able to draft with absolute clarity and precision, but also use drafting skills effectively for persuasive and tactical purposes. This new edition has been revised and updated to act as a comprehensive teaching manual which will be of real practical use to all students. It places the emphasis on pleadings, both because of their importance in civil litigation, and because they provide the best foundation for the learning process. However, it also covers a variety of types of drafting that are of relevance to general practice. Each chapter contains numerous examples and every example is followed by a detailed commentary explaining the draft. Throughout the Manual are a series of exercises, which will enable students and practitioners to practise and develop their skills and to discover further techniques not included in the examples. This edition takes into account all the latest changes relating to practice and procedure.
