In the legal world, a push (OK, a gentle shove) is on for lawyers to use plain, everyday English. Here are some of their old standbys that use “here,” along with their alternatives. You don’t have to be a lawyer to benefit from giving up this la-de-dah language.
1. Hereafter, hereby (now)
2. Herein (here)
3. Hereinafter (from now on)
4. Hereinbefore, hereto (until now)
5. Hereupon (immediately after this, right now)
6. Herewith (with this letter)
