The Redbook a Manual on Legal Style

You`ll find a usage section with over 1,000 words that cause problems for legal writers, a list of over 200 artificial terms that take on new meanings in the field of law, and a guide to using over 800 words that take on certain prepositions. There are also long lists of words and phrases to watch out for – such as pompous legalese that clients and judges hate, duplicates and triples that can add more ambiguity than clarity, deadwood words and phrases that add nothing at all, as well as stuffy sentences, verbose phrases, and fancy words (with suggestions for simple substitutes).

Every punctuation rule, every important grammatical rule, and every important principle of legal writing can be found here.
