Synthesis employs a successful step-by-step approach to effective legal reasoning and writing skills, teaching students how to think like a lawyer: how to read the law, how to reason a client s situation, and how to write about the case in different legal forms. One solid case file--the HomeElderCare case involving the unauthorized practice of law--is used to demonstrate how to carefully analyze a case from the initial client interview through appellate argument. Maintaining a pedagogy designed to teach students in a variety of ways, the text incorporates numerous charts and diagrams for visual learners. Exercises--based on tort law issues that are particularly accessible to first-year students--provide opportunities for active application of skills. Also included is complete coverage of memo and brief writing.
