Basics of Legal Argumentation and its Expression
This is a book about the process of legal writing. Unlike many other legal writing books, it focuses on the creating and thinking aspects that are fundamental pieces of legal writing. While an effective product is the ultimate goal, the author acknowledges that legal writing cannot be a one size fits all proposition. Because each case for which a document is written is unique, the document’s effectiveness is in large part based on the less tangible thinking that precedes production of a concrete and tangible document. The book explains the underlying concepts of these crucial thinking skills and gives the reader an approach to working with them toward the goal of producing a piece of legal writing that is effective for the unique case or situation for which it is written. Although written for novice legal writers, those with more experience will find this book a welcome refresher, and those not regularly engaged with the law will find valuable insights into the reasoning process of lawyers.
