The purpose of Decisions, Decisions... A Handbook for Judicial Writing is to serve as a guide to everyone called upon to write decisions, whether judges, administrators, arbitrators or referees. It will help them develop certain techniques in the writing of judgments, so that their judgments can be a pleasure to read and to write. Citing numerous examples, the authors address with accuracy and humour different subjects related to legal or judicial writing, among others, the organization of the text, the potential audience, the importance of conciseness, the essence of style and the need for revision. The book includes useful advice on what to do and what not to do in the art of judgment writing. It should also prove beneficial to those called upon to plead before the courts.
