This highly accessible text uses a process-based approach that integrates legal analysis with writing to provide a basic introduction to the skills needed for effective legal writing. Professor Linda Edwards, a highly respected member of the legal writing community, identifies four main stages of a writing task and helps students learn how to use each stage as a tool to better writing.

Among the attributes that have made Legal Writing: Process, Analysis, and Organization so successful:

  • The text takes students, step-by-step, through outlining, creating a working draft, creating the final document, and revising effectively.
  • Creating a rule of law is integrated into the writing process and linked to the large-scale organization of the document, so that reasoning and writing are taught as two interrelated processes.
  • Concrete explanations and examples that reinforce the material.
  • Exercises that help students build their writing skills.
  • Appendices that include sample office memoranda, trial brief, appellate briefs, letters, and cases used in the text's examples and
    exercise

New to the updated Fifth Edition:

  • A chapter on professional letter writing has been added that includes letters to clients, letters to other lawyers, and transmittal letters.
  • An appendix with various sample letters

Legal Writing: Process, Analysis, and Organization, Fifth Edition , is an accessible and teachable text that focuses on the basic substantive and organizational principles of good legal writing.
