Summary
This third edition of a guide for international students in law contains a new introductory chapter on what is different about US law schools and on study skills international students will need immediately in US-style doctrinal law classes, such as techniques for reading, briefing cases, and course outlining. There is also a new chapter on the technological revolution in legal practice in areas such as e-filing, technology in the courtroom, and document automation. In addition, these early chapters explain how a common law system differs from traditional civilian legal systems, how to locate authorities in a library or online, and how to synthesize several sources into an operative legal rule through IRAC analysis and a short closed-universe memorandum. Subsequent chapters cover researching and updating case law, constitutions, statutes, regulations, and international law, as well as writing issues such as advanced objective writing, persuasive writing, drafting contracts, and drafting advisory memoranda for attorneys in the US. Nedzel teaches at the Southern University Law Center. Aspen Publishers is now Wolters Kluwer Law & Business. Annotation ©2012 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
