Overview

This law school text organizes documents into three sections that correspond to the three major modes of written communication in the law��Litigating,� �Informing and Persuading,� and �Rule-making� � each with its own signature writing skills. Part One focuses on pleadings and motions, Part Two covers letters, briefs, and opinions, and Part Three covers contracts, legislation, and wills. It is intended for both �Advanced Writing� and �Introduction to Drafting� courses. However, this text treats a broad range of documents and a broad range of skills, and so it is suitable for all of these upper-level writing courses.
