The Party of the First Part

In The Party of the the First Part: The Curious World of Legalese, author Adam J. Freedman takes an hilarious look at legalese and the struggle between the Precision School of legal drafting, which holds that lawyers must use complex language to achieve the precision the law requires, and the Plain English camp, which maintains that clarity and accessibility need not be sacrificed to achieve precision.

As an added bonus, Amazon also hosts a blog for Mr. Freedman that covers the curious world of legalese.
