The Criminal Justice Student Writer's Manual will help you organize your thoughts in order to write clearly and accurately. Rather than prescribing rules, it helps you say what needs to be saidsimply, honestly, and to the point. As you develop this skill, you will find that it will help you in countless ways throughout your career.
