Further improvements have been made in this edition with latest case laws. Needless to reiterate that every draft pertaining to legal implications has a unique design. These designs are evolved in the past. A design of an agreement would be different from a legal notice to an individual. Even the latter would be different from a public notice. Drafting of a Will or power of attorney will be entirely different. Also, any legal or law-related document is to fully understand its context, which includes studying the language used by the courts, lawyers and all those who are concerned. For those new to legal drafting or unfamiliar with an area of the law, a legal dictionary can be invaluable. Short sentences give space to the reader to have pause and understand what is written. The new paragraph should be in line with the last paragraph. It should have some linkage with the previously told facts. Continuity is important. While drafting any document, one should have the basic understanding with the legal terminology and its meaning. The index of the book will tell the readers at a glance that the new edition covers wide range of topics pertaining to the subject. Law changes with the evolution of time. Even old basic laws have been interpreted in the light of current socio-economic situations prevailing in society. Some Judges of the Supreme Court and the High Courts believe that ‘legal positivism’ is an anathema to ‘judicial activism’ and, therefore, they prefer the latter. And this tendency has certainly gone a long way in providing a new dimension to legal implications of the deeds and other drafts of semi legal nature. This edition of the book is revised in conformity with the latest judicial pronouncements also.
