Lay Words for Lawyers
William Drennan, published 2008, 109 pages
A must-have for lawyers as well as wordsmiths, this book provides verbal “ammunition” for the legal practitioner. The key words and analogies featured in the book are intended to elicit strong mental–but particularly strong emotional–images or memories in the hearer, to stimulate in the listener a flood of associations with these words in order to effectively communicate with clients, witnesses, and jurors. Each category highlights words that may be unfamiliar to the lawyer and then provides definitions on meanings and examples of common usage.
