PC: 407123/407123E

For the past 20 years, Hon. Gerald Lebovits has educated attorneys on the finer points of legal writing with practical, real-world advice in his aptly named column “The Legal Writer.” The column, a fixture in the New York State Bar Association Journal, was so popular that two previous books were published: The Legal Writer: Writing It Right and The Legal Writer: Drafting New York Civil-Litigation Documents

Now Judge Lebowitz cements his legacy with The Legal Writer: The Last Word, the third and final title in NYSBA’s Legal Writer series and another essential resource for success. Like the other two Legal Writer books, this new work is a collection of in-depth columns and includes practical legal writing advice, writing and punctuation exercises, lessons on citation, and a 17-part series dissecting the very best legal writers of our time, including Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Antonin Scalia, and Judith Kaye. 


Purchase this new title on its own or get the three-book series.
