Legal Writing and Analysis, Fourth Edition, is a concise text that still has all of the clarity of Linda Edward’s writing style and process-based approach. In a sequence that mirrors legal practice, students learn to read and analyze the law; discuss and write about legal issues; compose office and email memos, professional correspondence, and briefs; and prepare oral arguments. This book teaches students how to use analogical reasoning, in addition to rule-based and policy-based reasoning, as a tool for synthesizing cases, how to organize a legal discussion using analysis and reasoning, and how to use precedent in persuasive legal writing, particularly with regard to cases.
Key Features of The New Edition:
- Thoroughly updated
- Discusses how to write an office memo via email
- Demonstrates how to use the optional "deep issue" format when writing issue statements
- Features expanded coverage of analogizing and distinguishing cases
- Adds updates to the citation rules, consistent with current citation authorities
