We are a worldwide group of lawyers and others who advocate using plain language in place of legalese. We ask writers to:
- consider the needs of the audience when drafting documents
- draft documents that are both certain in meaning and easily understood
- avoid archaic, obscure, and over-elaborate language in legal and related work.
What we do
We promote our goals by:
- linking plain language advocates and encouraging them to share best practices and lessons learned
- publishing a twice-yearly journal, Clarity
- publishing this website
- maintaining an email listserv
- planning a biennial conference
- coordinating with other organizations interested in plain language.
How can you get involved?
