Legal drafting: a complement to brief writing

Those who have commented have said that legal drafting would be an important addition to the legal-writing curriculum in law school, but all have said it should not replace brief writing.

I agree. The legal-writing curriculum should include ample instruction and chances to practice all three types of legal writing:
  • objective legal analysis
  • persuasive legal analysis
  • legal drafting
I maintain that legal drafting is as important for legal practice as persuasive writing and that legal drafting is not taught or not taught well in our law schools.
