Clarity - Advocating plain legal language
We are a worldwide group of lawyers and others who advocate using plain language in place of legalese. We promote our goals in many ways.
Clarity is currently updating its website to make it more useful to our members and those interested in plain language. Please bear with us while we make these changes.

VALE - Robert Eagleson 28 October 2013
It is with great sadness that we learnt that Robert Eagleson died on 28 October. Robert was a legendary figure in the plain language world, and many will remember him as an inspirational guide and mentor.
When Robert retired from the Clarity committee, Joe Kimble wrote the following tribute.
We plan to publish a fuller tribute in the next issue of Clarity.
Clarity Conference 12-14 November 2014
It was confirmed at PLAIN2013 that the Clarity Conference will take place in Belgium in November 2014. More details to follow.
The conference is being presented jointly with IC Clear.
IC Clear - improving plain-language training
The EU funded IC Clear project will develop, pilot and implement a postgraduate course in clear communication to respond to the increase in demand for clear, easy-to-understand information and the lack of well-trained clear-communication professionals.
