Richard Castle publishes new edition of his Drafting Guide

last modified Feb 04, 2020 12:41 AM
Centre Fellow Richard Castle publishes the 2nd edition of Drafting Guide for Private Legal Documents

This book is intended for drafters of contracts, leases, wills
and other private documents in England and Wales who
want to produce instruments that are effective, clear and
pleasing – both for the drafter and the reader.
The book is based on drafting guidance published by
the Office of the Parliamentary Counsel in Whitehall,
London. This second edition adds a number of entire document
precedents showing how the principles in the
earlier part of the book can work in practice. The book
shuns legalese and demonstrates how standard English
is more than adequate for the job. Moreover it illustrates
how presentation and layout play a big part in making a
formal document readable. Colour printing is used to aid
understanding.
RICHARD CASTLE is a solicitor with considerable
experience of drafting legal documents. He was co-author
of ‘Modern Legal Drafting’ (CUP), 2nd edition 2006 and has
written a number of other books and articles. He studied,
worked and lived in Cambridge for many years, and now
lives in Tetbury, Gloucestershire.
