Description

You’re ready to take the plunge into law school (or you already have) and there is one big thing looming over you: LEGAL WRITING. You’ve heard that legal writing is hard. You’ve heard that legal writing is scary. You have not written anything since your mandatory college English class. Well, simmer down, you have found the antidote to your fear-based illness. This book takes you through the history, meaning, and purpose of legal writing in the American law. You will learn the essential form and substance necessary to craft an inter-office legal memo, helpful ideas for persuasive brief-writing, and tips for excelling in legal writing.
