Like the very popular 1st edition, this ebook “A Lawyer Writes: A Practical Guide to Legal Analysis 2nd edition” puts the reader in the place of a first-year attorney/lawyer faced with real life assignments. In doing so, it teaches law students not only how to succeed in law school, but also how to succeed in the practice of law. Using visual samples and graphics, the ebook shows best practices in both electronic and traditional environments. Speaking to its readers in a straightforward manner, A Lawyer Writes 2nd edition communicates essential skills and theories so that they will be retained for a lifetime of legal practice.

There are two significant changes in the 2nd edition of A Lawyer Writes. First, 2 new chapters have been added: Chapter 17, Client Letters, and Chapter 19, The Transition from Objective to Persuasive Writing. (What was Chapter 17, Professional E-mails, will appear as Chapter 18.) In addition, section 8.3, Applying the Law: Counter Analyses, has been re-organized, but the content has remained the same. All other updates to the book are smaller edits that create consistency, fix errors, or further clarify an existing idea.

Editorial Reviews

Review

“One of the best parts of A Lawyer Writes is its chapter explaining rules. After my students read that chapter, they really seemed to understand the concept that rules can be stated implicitly in the cases, and that it was their job to make those rules explicit for their readers. The book also provides a number of excellent, easy-to-understand examples in every chapter, which the students found very helpful.” — Alison Julien, Associate Professor of Legal Writing, Marquette University Law School (for the first edition)
