Reviews - What do customers think about The Language of the Law?

A long, scholarly treatise, and every page is worth reading.  Aug 29, 2003
This book is an exhaustively researched, scholarly treatment of legal language from its earliest days until the 1970s. The text is almost intimidating in its scope, but Mellinkoff's wit and piercing insights into legalese make it a joy to read.

Any lawyer who reads it will have many "aha" moments ("So THAT'S why we write that way"). Plus, you're bound to improve your writing ("I guess I can stop using that archaic word, now").

Also, this book should be required reading for everyone who teaches legal writing.
