A new edition of this text is available here
The second edition of this popular text provides students with in-depth knowledge of the fundamentals divided into four parts: Introduction to Research Analytical Principles and the Legal Process; Legal Research; Legal Analysis; and Legal Writing. This approach meets the challenge that Paralegals and law clerks are increasingly faced with when called upon to perform substantive legal research, analysis, and writing tasks. Comprehensive coverage of the difficult areas of legal research, analysis, and writing, such as: conducting statutory research and analysis; how to cite authority; how to identify the key facts in a case; how to conduct counteranalysis; and how to prepare an interoffice memorandum and court brief are included. Numerous hypotheticals, examples, and exercises engage students, and make the subject matter easier to comprehend. The setup of this text allows for use in separate research and writing courses, or where both researching and writing are combined in one course, instructors can select the chapters deemed appropriate.
