Legal Reasoning, Research, and Writing for International Graduate Students (Paperback) (Nadia E. Nedzel)
about this item
Legal Reasoning, Research, and Writing for International Graduate Students helps readers understand and approach legal research and writing assignments the way attorneys do in the United States. Chapters are short and clear, and repeat the major points to aid, in particular, LL.M. candidates who are not native English speakers. A methodology of research and writing in preparing legal documents is presented, and reasoning and writing methods are based on standard IRAC analysis used by many instructors. To allow instructors to discuss citation requirements as they become needed, citation format information is integrated into the text. Most of the exercises in each chapter can be done on the Web as well as in the law library, with either commercial or non-commercial websites.
- An example of rule synthesis based on the simple Soccer close memo example that had been included in the third edition
- Updated the chapter on the use of technology in the court system and by practicing attorneys, and how both changing technology and economic changes are affecting the legal profession in the United States.
- New, straightforward, and very effective way for students to outline essay exam questions.
