The second edition has the same accessible format as the first; it divides the process of thinking & writing about legal problems into steps, explains the steps, illustrates good & bad ways of applying the steps, & provides focused exercises to reinforce good legal writing skills. Three new appendixes-two trial court briefs & a second memo-have also been added. The methods & writing skills in the book teach & reinforce the basic skills for "thinking like a lawyer." Complimentary Teacher's Manual available for quantity orders by professors & law schools. Second & third printings in 1995 & 1999 respectively. THIS BOOK IS PART OF OUR STUDENT SURVIVAL PACK...6 books for one low price (see Hein Item #324340).

Review: A Practical Guide to Legal Writing & Legal Method

User Review  - Mark Heeyeaah - Goodreads

A good tool. I would really just give it 3 1/2 stars. I suppose it could be considered "best in its class," but I didn't see any real revelations in it. Legal writing just isn't that complicated. Read full review
