9780735585164: The Legal Writing Handbook: Analysis, Research and Writing, 5th Edition

Students and professors will welcome this new edition of the only text for legal writing and research that covers all three key components of the first-year course -- research, writing, and analysis. These distinctive features earned THE LEGAL WRITING HANDBOOK its popularity: comprehensive coverage of analysis, writing, and research; teaches a state of the art approach to legal research, with an emphasis on electronic research; uses a process approach to lead students from pre-writing to drafting, editing, and the final draft; begins with the basics of the legal system, introducing 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; offers resources to help students become more effective writers, including extensive guidance on effective legal style, grammar, and mechanics; demonstrates concepts through the use of examples; provides grammar and rhetorical/cultural information designed specifically for law students for whom English is a second language; broad coverage makes the book easy to adapt for two-, three-, or four-semester programs; provides numerous exercises in an accompanying Practice Book to help students master research and writing skills. Through painstaking editing, the Fifth Edition incorporates new material without increasing the length of the book: a reorganized and updated presentation of research reflects the changes in practice. Exhibits are now included on CD with the book, for easy reference. A new section on legal reading, the section on writing memos includes new examples and an additional chapter on writing more sophisticated memos; the increased use of Practice Pointers and Questions reflects the latest research on active learning, while the emphasis on teaching underlying structures applies research on transfer of learning new, short sections raise issues relating to professionalism and the role of lawyers; the chapter on effective paragraphs and the sections on Legal Writing for English-as-a-Second-Language Students and on bias-free and gender-neutral language are all thoroughly updated; new material offers advice on how to avoid procrastination and other writing obstacles.
