Solve a task

Make sure that when solving a task you follow the below guidelines which, we think reflect our internal philosophy of written communication and, we believe can be of some help for professional writing in general

  • Answer in a clear and explicit manner
  • Analyze questions and collect exhaustive case-law and literature before you start
  • Prepare a brief outline; this will be evident in your final paper
  • Exclude topics which, though demonstrate your general knowledge, are unrelated to the problem. Think what you shouldn’t write about
  • Write interestingly, in a clear and simple language. Don’t use either Latin or jargon unless necessary. Don’t quote provisions unless you really have to (e.g. in order to discuss discrepancies in interpretations). Don’t use embellishments and sophisticated figures of speech.
  • Never disregard any ideas crucial for task solution.
  • In problematic issues describe possible solutions and arguments in support of them. Indicate the version you are inclined to support and explain why.
  • Write, and then correct. Then correct again. Then finally check and correct.
  • Don’t ruin the overall effect with linguistic, orthographic or spelling mistakes.
  • Write clearly and explicitly; if some principle renders it difficult or impossible, this one prevails.

We believe that timely action is a most valued aspect of a lawyer’s work. Remember to send your task back within a given deadline.
