"Many legal writing texts emphasize how one writes; this book is unique because it also focuses on why one writes. Every chapter challenges the reader to write to achieve a strategic objective. Each assignment has been carefully considered by the authors, and fully vetted to simulate the decision-making involved in the preparation of important legal writing, whether in a general counsel's office, a law office, a government attorney's office, or a judge's chambers. Simply put, the authors' approach is that effective legal writing does not exist in a vacuum. This book provides practical assignments that teach the student that the best legal writing is not an end in itself, but a means to a larger strategic objective."

"Providing students with an in-depth knowledge in the fundamentals of legal analysis and writing, this text details the operation of elements used in the analysis and writing process. Its contents are national in scope and are designed for students who have completed the introductory legal assistant courses. In addition to explaining basic legal principles, elements and tools, the text shows how to apply these principles, especially in difficult areas of legal analysis and writing that are not given extensive coverage in other texts. Some of these topics include statutory analysis, case law, case law briefing, key facts, issue identification, stating the issue, case law application and counteranalysis, legal correspondence, legal research memoranda, and court briefs. Each chapter outlines a hypothetical fact situation and discusses examples of concepts or principles to illustrate how application is made."
