Overview

THE BRAMBLE BUSH remains a book often recommended to read when considering law school, before beginning its study, or early in the first semester. It began as a collection of introductory lectures given by Karl Llewellyn to new students at Columbia University. It still speaks to law, legal reasoning, and exam skills in a way that makes it a classic for each new generation.

Llewellyn's pointed and clear explanations of case briefing before class, visualization of facts, active learning in class, the use of precedent, exam skills, and the limits of logic have proved timeless and highly practical. They remain excellent advice for current students to consider and implement in their own journey into the law, and this book gets to the nuts and bolts about studying law successfully in traditional legal education.

Whether from the enduring nature of his hands-on advice, or from the reality that the first year of law study and its classroom method just have not changed very much over the years, the book remains, by all accounts, targeted to the way 'thinking like a lawyer' continues in the modern law school.

Now in a high-quality NOOKBook edition from Quid Pro Books, THE BRAMBLE BUSH features active contents, linked notes, and even embedded page numbers from the previous, standard print editions—for continuity of referencing, citations, or classroom assignment. Quid Pro's hyperaccurate reproduction of the original text is unlike any other version available, even including modern print editions from traditional publishers (who nonetheless appear to use poor scanning and thus altered the text, omit sentences, add many italics, misspell legal terms, and changed the pagination). Only Quid Pro's editions of this classic work respect Llewellyn's book by presenting it as he meant it, yet in a modern format and clear presentation for a new generation. [Please be aware that this description may appear on a product page below other versions of the work, but only Quid Pro's productions have these features.]
