Legal Method and Writing
Highly regarded for its effectiveness in teaching students to apply legal resoning skills to professional writing tasks, Calleros' LEGAL METHOD AND WRITING is now available in an even more accessible Third Edition. Taking a distinctly practical approach and helping students hone their study skills, the book anchors writing and analysis skills with examples familiar to students and provides a number of real-life examples. the book's five parts include an introduction to the legal system and legal method and address case bies, course outlines, and essay examinations; writing style and process; writing the officememorandum. It also gives an introduction to advocacy and appellate briefs. Equally useful for both advanced writing seminaries and as a continuing resource in private practice, this coursebook addresses trial advocacy and writing to parities in contracts and correspondence. Always comprehensive, and still strong in multicultural issues, problems, and examples, the Third Edition also makes the text easier to use, and more clearly reveals its emphasis on process, by dividing its topics into a greater number of chapters and reorganizing several of the existing chapters; supplements its discussion of research techniques with sections on computer-assisted research and search tools for legislative history; and includes textual updates with new problems and examples from recent case law and with discussions of citation form under the 16th edition of the Blue Book, including citation of computer and Internet sources.
