This is the first book to introduce students to the aims, organization and style of scholarly legal writing. The text is useful to law review members and faculty advisors alike. It is also a helpful supplement to a law review's own manual and to existing texts on manuscript preparation. The book is comprised of eight chapters. The first chapter introduces students to scholarly writing genres, while following chapters deal with "Brainstorming" for a topic and a thesis; research strategies; the crucial writing process itself, from the initial draft through revising and polishing; the use of footnotes; style; and finally, law review editing.
