Uncommon Law of Learned Writing, 9 July 2018, Sheraton Hotel, Ikeja Lagos
As lawyers, we must not desert cool common sense in our hot pursuit of common law. Uncommon Law of Learned Writing promotes common sense in legal language. Plain language, which is commonsensical, broadens access to legal documents, thus democratizing the law.
No democratic society should brook legalese, a dense, verbose dialect known only to lawyers. What then should society do to redress the lawyer-induced obscurity? A Shakespearean character had an alarming proposal: “The first thing we do, let’s kill all the lawyers.”
Apparently, that proposal was not enthusiastically endorsed, which explains why we’re still here. A milder remedy—enrolling lawyers in language classes—has been muted, which explains why you should attend this course.
