Legal writing style manuals

In response to a listserv query for legal writing style manuals, Ken Svengalis recommended The Red Book: A Manual on Legal Style (West, 2006) and The Elements of Legal Style (Oxford, 2002).    I wrote those books into a “Style Manuals” section that also recommends checking future editions of Ken’s Legal Information Buyer’s Guide & Reference Manual for more current sources.    I added the new section to the Dictionaries entry for now, with the idea of finding a better place for it in the future.
