Summary

Legal English effectively communicates to students the nuances of legal language in the United States. Professors Brostoff and Sinsheimer of the University of Pittsburgh School of Law unravel the legal system and study of law by using legal English in actual problems and exercises. This book acquaints readers with the two most important skills-legal research and writing-and approaches each problem and exercise from a different legal subject area. By discussing problem-solving techniques in a wide variety of topics, this workbook successfully increases student levels in reading and understanding legal documents. The new edition features revised and updated exercises, including: new internet research skills exercises, new writing and language exercises, and an expanded appellate advocacy section.
