Summary
  • For its highly effective pedagogy and its clear and complete coverage of the first-year legal writing and research course, this process-oriented coursebook has become a leading text in the field. The authors have refreshed and honed the features that make The Legal Writing Handbook so popular: Comprehensive coverage-builds on the three cornerstones of the first-year course: legal analysis, writing, and research, A state-of-the-art approach to teaching legal research-with an emphasis on electronic research, The highly successful process approach-guides students through every phase of writing from pre-writing to drafting, editing, and polishing the final draft, Begins with the basics of the legal system-introduces students to how to read and analyze statutes and cases, then takes students through the process of writing an objective memorandum and trial and appellate briefs, Ample use of examples-to demonstrate new concepts clearly, Extensive guidance on effective legal style, grammar, and mechanics-to help students become better writer, Grammar and rhetorical/cultural information-designed specifically for law students for whom English is a second language, Numerous exercises in the accompanying Practice Book-for developing research and writing skills
  • New to the Fourth Edition: A reorganized and updated presentation of research-reflects the changes in practice, Exhibits now included on a CD with the book-for easy reference, A new section on legal reading, New examples in writing memos coverage-and an additional chapter on writing more sophisticated memos, Issues related to professionalism and the role of lawyers-appear as short sections throughout the book, How to avoid procrastination-plus additional tips for overcoming common obstacles to writing
