Clarity in legal writing

Beginning today, May 21, 2012, Scribes, the Clarity international association and the Center for Plain Language are co-hosting a conference in Wash8ing D.C., focusing on the new United States Plain Writing Act of 2010 (excellent information page here). There is also a Plain Regulations Act, but that is not the focus of the conference, exactly.

Tip of the OOTJ hat to The Scrivener, whose Winter, 2012 issue not only announces the conference, but also has some powerful and charming articles on plain language writing. I recommend it!
