Overview

To win in court you must master the elements of legal logic-the ultimate tool of persuasion in the courtroom. In Logic for Lawyers: A Guide to Clear Legal Thinking, Senior U.S. Circuit Judge Ruggero J. Aldisert tells how to use legal reasoning to persuade judges and juries.
A 30-year veteran of the bench, Aldisert helps litigators understand and apply the elements of legal logic. Using these skills, you can argue more persuasively-both in briefs and before the court. And just as critically, you can also expose flaws in adversaries' arguments. The result? A competitive edge in the courtroom.

Rather than miring readers in exotic formulas and theories often found in logic texts, Aldisert explains in broad strokes the basics of logic and its application to legal thinking. You'll gain important insight into the mental processes we use in "thinking like a lawyer."

What People Are Saying

Elizabeth H. Patterson
"Logic for Lawyers points out to future lawyers the fallacies of which we are all guilty from time to time. Most importantly, if this book reaches the new or prelaw student, it will aid in avoiding the development of bad habits in legal reasoning. This book ought to be a part of any course which seeks to introduce students to the law and legal reasoning."--(Elizabeth H. Patterson, Associate Professor, Georgetown University Law Center)
Mark A. Nordenberg
"Logic for Lawyers is the product of a keen mind that has benefited from opportunities to engage in and examine legal thinking from a variety of perspectives. This volume fills a surprising void in the current legal literature. Its publication should be particularly welcomed by law students and those who teach them."--(Mark A. Nordenberg, Chancellor and Professor of Law, University of Pittsburgh)
William J. Brennan
"This is a book about legal reasoning or legal logic. While not challenging Justice Holmes' classic statement, 'The life of the law has not been logic; it has been experience,' it offers telling arguments that legal reasoning or legal logic may plan an equal or even more significant role in the life of the law . . . . All judges, lawyers, and law students will greatly profit by reading it."--(William J. Brennan, Jr., U.S. Supreme Court Justice (Ret.))
