Product Description

Mastering Legal Analysis and Communication is designed to help novices navigate the often difficult task of learning new ways of thinking and communicating. Law schools employ methodologies and pedagogical paradigms that law students find mystifying and hard to comprehend. This book aims to explain how these methodologies and paradigms function, why they are used, and what they are meant to accomplish. The topics covered range from the basic concepts of understanding what law is and what “thinking like a lawyer” means, to making sense out of the structural paradigms of legal writing and rhetoric.

Mastering Legal Analysis and Communication will serve as a useful guide for students as they undertake their studies in both their casebook and practical skills courses. In fact, the themes discussed and explanations offered will help students better see that the analytical and communication skills utilized in all their classes fall upon the same continuum of professional competence. As such, this book is a vital reference work for students as they try to make sense of their law school studies in a more comprehensive and connected way.

The Mastering Series is designed to provide law students the critical tools needed to easily and efficiently master the substance and content of various law school courses. All books in the series are easy to read, with key terms emphasized and explained. Footnotes and cites to secondary sources are used sparingly, allowing the reader to concentrate on the essential material. To facilitate the mastery of topics, the Mastering Series includes key features designed to improve learning and retention:

At the beginning of each chapter, a Roadmap introduces the chapter and provides readers with an overview of the material that will be covered. This list of bulleted points clearly maps out the direction of the chapter, covering all key topics.

Checkpoints at the end of each chapter encourage readers to stop and review the key concepts, reiterating what has been learned. These points serve as an excellent mechanism for double-checking knowledge.

Finally, a Master Checklist at the end of each book reinforces what has been covered and helps readers identify any areas that need review or further study. The Master Checklist is a perfect tool for self-assessing one’s mastery of the material.
