Overview

The Five Types of Legal Argument succeeds both as a work of legal theory and as a practical guide to legal reasoning for law students, lawyers and judges. Huhn shows readers how to identify, create, attack, and evaluate the five types of legal arguments (text, intent, precedent, tradition and policy) and how to weave the different types of arguments to get theoretical and practical themes of the work. Huhn introduces two additional ways of attacking legal arguments, and in a new chapter he utilizes principles of deductive logic to demonstrate the validity of the theory of the five types of legal arguments. The principal strength of this book is its clarity. Organized simply and logically, the book is written in plain language that is easily understood both by lay persons and professionals. The Five Types of Legal Argument is required reading at a number of leading American law schools, and it is recommended for anyone who wishes to understand how to construct and how to critique legal arguments to make them more persuasive. The second edition further develops both the theoretical and practical themes of the work.

    I did not find this book until after my first year of law school. I wish it had been required reading prior to my first day. It helps you understand why law school materials are so confusing in the first year. Everyone has heard at one point in their life that there are always two sides of a story, but in law school you quickly realize that each side in a legal argument/dispute will likely use many types of arguments to support a position. These different types of arguments, all five, must be recognizable by a law student so they can first understand what is going on and then how each type of argument can be attacked. The five types of legal arguments can help future law students understand what to expect from law school materials. I feel that this book is a must read for anyone starting law school and anyone thinking of attending law school. It is a road map to understanding legal text.
