about this item

Synthesis: Legal Reading, Reasoning, and Communication employs a successful step-by-step approach to effective legal reasoning and writing skills, teaching students how to think like a lawyer: how to read the law, how to reason a client’s situation, and how to write about the case in different legal forms. Maintaining a pedagogy designed to teach students in a variety of ways, the text incorporates numerous charts and diagrams for visual learners. Exercises—based on tort law issues that are particularly accessible to first-year students—provide opportunities for active application of skills. Also included is complete coverage of memo and brief writing. The book is accompanied by a Teacher’s Manual that contains additional exercises based on different areas of the first-year curriculum, suggestions for how to most effectively use the book, and sample syllabi.
