Alan Siegel on simplifying legal jargon (simple language)

Alan Siegel talks of how tax forms, credit agreements and understanding healthcare legislation can be so difficult to understand. He calls for a simple, sensible redesign, and plain English, to make legal paperwork intelligible to the rest of us. Simple language, as I have written about earlier, is something that needs to be used in such documents, if we want them to be easily and quickly understood by its readers.
