The legal writing is the type of the technical writing which is used by the legislators, judges and lawyers or other people who want to express their legal analysis in terms of duties and legal rights.
The Legal Writing Jobs put more importance on the authority. The writer has to include the statements and the assertion for the statement of the authority. This is done by using a complicated and unique citation that cannot be found with any other writing genre. The legal writing also values the precedents but it is distinct from the authority. The precedent is about what took place before. An example is when a lawyer may have prepared a contract, he will reuse it for a new contract by making some small changes. A lawyer who had also successful pushed a motion, he can use the same form for a new motion if he needs to do that. Different lawyers will use the same documents all over again.
To become a legal writer, it is important to know the phrases and the words that are special to the law. You have to know the meaning of the normal words in the law context. You have to be aware of the archaic vocabularies that are used with the legal writing but which were formally used by the quotidian language. It is also important to know the loan phrases and loan words that are used from other languages.
The legal writing is formal. The formality can be in terms of the long sentences and complex constructions, hyper formal and archaic vocabulary. It focuses to the content and the exclusion of the needs of the reader. The formality in the legal writing is desirable and necessary that give the legal documents the seriousness of the circumstances for which the legal document are normally used. However, if the legal content is targeting the non-lawyers, then the writing has to be clear.
The legal writing is found in two different categories which are the legal drafting and legal analysis. The legal analysis is also divided into two separate areas which are the persuasive analysis and predictive analysis. Students who are in the law school may learn about the legal writing as a subject.
While writing a persuasive and analysis document, the lawyer is still under the same rules that regards the plagiarism. The briefs and legal memoranda can be attributed to the source authorities and quotations. When it comes to the legal drafting, it is allowed to do plagiarism because of the high value given to the precedent. This is because the lawyer may use the same format for the wills and contracts. A good lawyer can make copies, clauses and verbatim from another contract.

The image of lawyers presented by television and movies is that they spend most of their time in the courtroom mercilessly drilling shady witnesses or delivering brilliant closing arguments. What the audiences don't see are the reams of written documents that support all of that oration or the time and skill it takes to produce those papers.
