Overview

Excerpt from Brief Making and the Use of Law Books

The first edition of "Brief Making," which was published in 1906, marked an epoch in the history of legal education and literature. Prior to that time very few law schools had attempted to give any systematic instruction in the art of brief making. The general excellence of the new book influenced a number of the leading law schools to adopt it as a text-book, and led others to establish courses of instruction founded on and following its general plan. This use of the book during the three years that have elapsed since its publication has, of course, been fruitful in suggestions for improvement. These suggestions have been supplemented by others developed from the editor's experience as a lecturer on Legal Bibliography and The Use of Law Books in the leading law schools of the country.

In the present edition a large amount of new material has been added, and the general arrangement has been altered to accord with the views of teachers and practitioners whose use of the book has qualified them to judge of the needs of the student and of the profession. Those parts of the original edition which treated of the subjects "Where to Find the Law" and "How to Find the Law" have been entirely rewritten. In compliance with the desire of many instructors there has been added a new part on "The Trial Brief."

It is believed that the new edition is well adapted to use as a text-book on brief making and as the foundation for a complete course of instruction in legal bibliography. The aim has been to make it suggestive and adapted to the methods of all teachers of the practical side of the law.
