Consumer Reports

Lawyers told to keep it simple | (UPI) -- Lawyers in Britain have been told to stop using jargon with clients and to deal with people politely.

The British Broadcasting Corp. reports a new charter for lawyers calls for them to stop using terms such as codicil, actus reus and forbearance and use plain English instead.

Lawyers also must be polite and considerate and explain their fees up-front, the BBC reports.

Brochures have been sent to all legal offices in an attempt to reduce the number of complaints made to the Office for the Supervision of Solicitors.
