Legal Skills

The motto for the Legal Skills website is ‘making law simple’. This notion is based on the view that by and large lawyers in common law jurisdictions have not developed proper methods for working with law, including methods for structuring and describing legal rules. Consequently a significant amount of the complexity in law is illusion. It reflects lack of technique including lack of ability to explain both legal method and rules of law.

This website provides access to publications of Sinch. These are one of two kinds – books for sale or articles for downloading free of charge. Most of these publications are directly or indirectly pointed towards explaining legal skills. By this means readers can grasp the truth of a basic proposition: when you have a sufficient grasp of legal skills then by and large law is simple. Part of the incentive for establishing this website is that these skills are commonly neglected or only sparsely treated in law schools.
