This is a library of guidelines, explanations, and examples to inspire and support you in exploring user-friendly approaches to contract simplification and visualization. Here we are dealing not so much with verbal content, there are plenty of good manuals and style guides out there to draft text that insulates the contract against litigation attacks.
