Thank you for this Andy, it’s really helpful.

I had to create something a bit different as I was developing a service, but after some research I was very pleased to stumble on:

‘A Manual of Style for Contract Drafting, Second Edition’

The lawyer who wrote it also believes in plain, easily understood text and essentially says that although legalise is proven to work in Courts, that is not reason enough to just keep on poisoning most peoples comprehension of this stuff. Very refreshing to hear this from a lawyer.

Again, ones own legal counsel is always the safest place to go for confirmation of any advice, but, I found it nice to find legal weight behind the argument that this stuff can be clearly understandable by normal people and not just those with a legal training.
