Overview

Now in its Second Edition, JUST MEMOS continues to offer students a solid guide to successful legal memo writing. Authored by well-known pioneers in the field, this text is designed for first-year law students, providing the information they need to successfully write objective memos, opinion letters and e-mails.

This brief text retains the excellent features that earned it great success in its first edition:

  • Helps students understand the features unique to memo writing and how to apply them in practice
  • Includes helpful examples of both simple and more complex memoranda
  • Provides unique coverage of memo writing by itself, for students who need extra help and guidance, or for instructors who want to add extra coverage of this area to their current legal writing text
  • Features the same straightforward, step-by-step writing style that has made other books of its kind so successful (e.g. Legal Writing Handbook)
  • Offers a Teacher's Manual that includes sample syllabi, class plans, handouts and suggested memo problems. A Website contains materials on effective teaching, sample class plans, PowerPoint slides and suggested memo problems
It is also carefully updated with great new material:
  • New organization and coverage recognize the increasingly global nature of legal practice. Detailed explanations of the United States legal system and writing practices helps lawyers from other countries acclimate to U.S. legal culture more thoroughly
  • Information designed to help undergraduates make the transition from different types of academic writing to legal writing and to guide foreign students to understand the rhetorical preferences of lawyers in the United States
  • Reorganization includes shorter, easier-to-teach chapters, a new chapter on writing e-mails, updated information on legal reading, new practice pointers and exercises, and more
