Legistics
More Than One Sentence in a Section or Subsection

Legistics est un recueil d’articles portant exclusivement sur les questions de rédaction en anglais des textes législatifs. La nature même de l’ouvrage fait en sorte qu’il n’est offert qu’en anglais.

A section or subsection should normally consist of a single sentence. However, more than one sentence may be used when

  • (a) the additional sentence is subordinate to the first or otherwise deals with the same idea;
  • (b) making it into a separate subsection would put undue emphasis on it; and
  • (c) the section or subsection does not become too long.
