        The first thing to consider in answering this question is, What is meant by “a book about legal writing”? Four different kinds of book come to mind. First, you have books that impart general writing advice, using examples drawn from legal prose. If you can’t afford a lawyer, you can always look around for lawyers who do pro-bono work in the publishing industry. And if that doesn’t turn out to be an option, at the very least, have a second set of eyes look at any contracts you intend on signing – it’s always good to have a second opinion and a person to bounce ideas off if something doesn’t seem right.

        Now, here are the 11 best writers conferences I recommend: #1- Author Advantage Live Virtual Experience The Author Advantage Live conference from Self-Publishing School tops our lists of writers conferences for because it’s truly one-of-a-kind experience, tailored to the demands of today’s digital author (and those aspiring to be!).. And this year, , they’re going VIRTUAL. Inspired by Strunk and White's The Elements of Style, this book explains the full range of what legal writers need to know: mechanics, word choice, structure, and rhetoric, as well as all the special conventions that legal writers should follow in using headings, defined terms, quotations, and .

      Rights and legal advice. In this section, you can find information about copyright law, publishing deals and protecting your rights as an author. Many writers are concerned that submitting their book to publishers or agents runs a risk – a risk that their work might be stolen (gasp!).
