Legal Research, Writing, and Analysis

Murray and DeSanctis employ the TREAT paradigm and the doctrine of explanatory synthesis that are designed with reference to rhetorical theory to maximize the effectiveness of audience-directed legal writing. This book has sample research plans for tight budgets in terms of time or expense.
