Advice about Legal Writing and Oral Advocacy

Legal English in Hong Kong has produced a series of short interviews about legal writing and oral advocacy. Particularly interesting is the advice from The Honourable Chief Justice Geoffrey Ma Tao-li, current Chief Justice of the Hong Kong Court of Final Appeal. Part one of his advice is here, 8 min, subtitles, transcript available. Part two is here, 4 min, subtitles, transcript available. Spoiler: the short answer to the question of what makes good legal writing is brevity.
