The Move toward Plain English

As you may recall, there have been posts and discussions at the regional public hearings about “legalese” and its exclusivity. While the South Carolina courts are in the process of moving toward Plain English, it’s important to recognize that this is an issue facing many other courts as well.

Well, there is help out there for English speakers and writers – in the form of blogs, articles and other resources – as I was recently reminded by Vickie Britton.

Thanks for bringing this back to our attention. This is an important issue for many South Carolinians.
