Summary

A standard-setter in American legal education, Writing and Analysis in the Law provides a guide to legal writing, focusing on the importance of clear organization in written and oral communications. Developed as a textbook for a first-year law school course, the book introduces law students to the principles of research, including analyzing legal authority in cases and statues. It discusses the structure and persuasive techniques of effective appellate argument, both in briefs and in oral presentation, and makes extensive use of illustrative examples and writing exercises, on topics such as memorandums, trial briefs, and oral presentations. Lucid, compact, and up-to-date, this work consistently draws acclaim in law schools across the country. Highlights of the fourth edition include new chapters on interviewing a client, counseling a client, and analyzing questions of law.
