Overview

An in-depth study of the fundamentals of legal analysis and writing, this book details the operation of elements used in the analysis and writing process. Its contents are national in scope and are designed for practicing legal assistants, first year law students, or those who have taken introductory legal assistant courses. Going beyond the explanations of basic legal principles, elements and tools, the book shows how to apply these principles, especially in difficult areas of legal analysis and writing that are not given extensive coverage in other texts. Some of these topics include statutory analysis, case law, case law briefing, key facts, issue identification, stating the issue, case law application and counteranalysis, legal correspondence, legal research memoranda, and court briefs. Each chapter outlines a hypothetical fact situation and discusses examples of concepts or principles to illustrate how application is made.
