15,99 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Admirably clear, concise, down-to-earth, and powerful - all too often, legal writing embodies none of these qualities. Its reputation for obscurity and needless legalese is widespread. Since 2001 Bryan A. Garner's 'Legal Writing in Plain English' has helped address this problem by providing lawyers, judges, paralegals, law students, and legal scholars with sound advice and practical tools for improving their written work. Now the leading guide to clear writing in the field, this indispensable volume encourages legal writers to challenge conventions and offers valuable insights into the writing process that will appeal to other professionals: how to organize ideas, create and refine prose, and improve editing skills. Accessible and witty, 'Legal Writing in Plain English' draws on real-life writing samples that Garner has gathered through decades of teaching experience.Trenchant advice covers all types of legal materials, from analytical and persuasive writing to legal drafting, and the book's principles are reinforced by sets of basic, intermediate, and advanced exercises in each section. In this new edition, Garner preserves the successful structure of the original while adjusting the content to make it even more class-room-friendly. He includes case examples from the past decade and addresses the widespread use of legal documents in electronic formats.His book remains the standard guide for producing the jargon-free language that clients demand and courts reward.

Organizing for Creative People: How to Channel ...
9,95 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Most of the conventional productivity advice you'll find in the soft business section simply does not work for creative people. Surprisingly, to date there has not been a single book or audiobook that addresses the unique organisational challenges that artists face. This audiobook sets out to change that, and it addresses the myth that truly creative people are messy and that they need mess in order to create. Sheila Chandra applies her professional insights as a creative and an organizing expert to the lives of other busy creative people in all disciplines - showing them how good organization can liberate their creative magic. She begins with artists' physical spaces, including arranging their workspaces and offices so that they remain tidy effortlessly. Her career headspace chapters cover creative well-being, including artist support systems; career well-being, including networking and collaborations; self-promotion and how to avoid working for free; making social media pay; personal branding, career planning and goals; how to manage copyright issues and legal paperwork; and legacy management. And all from an artist's point of view. These foolproof, tried-and-tested systems are mixed with creativity tips and artist well-being advice that only one artist knows to give another. Writing with real affection for the listener, Sheila Chandra takes the creative person by the hand and puts them on the path to success. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Joan Walker.
