Overview

Legal Writing guides students comprehensively through this vital legal skill and addresses a range of assessment methods, from exam questions to final essays and problem answers. It considers how to deconstruct essay and problem questions and how to conduct and apply legal research to answer set questions.

Lisa Webley explains how to reference others' work clearly and correctly, making this book a useful tool for students concerned about issues of plagiarism. It also focuses on how to develop and communicate legal arguments, with both good and bad examples of written work considered and discussed in the text.

Legal Writing is particularly useful for undergraduate students, especially at the beginning of degree studies, and to GDL and CPE students too.

This fully revised third edition includes:

  • More guidance on reading, including speed reading techniques, and on note-taking skills
  • A wholly revised chapter on referencing to employ the OSCOLA style, which has become the default style of most UK law schools in recent years
  • More worked examples throughout the text, and additional examples from across the legal curriculum on the companion website

An improved companion website with increased guidance for revision, FAQs and more multiple choice questions allow students to test their progress and further engage with the topics in the book.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"I cannot recommend Lisa’s book to students enough... I believe in demystifying the learning process and academic expectations for undergraduates, as today, many are working part-time jobs while also settling into a new environment, culture and education system as well as starting to carve out their future careers. Lisa’s book provides succinct and accessible help support to students understanding of the academic expectations for a first class law degree." Dr Amy Codling, The University of Reading.
