The Th
ird Edition features new material throughout on drawing factual inferences, one of the most important kinds of reasoning for legal writers, as well as additional examples on the book s companion web site.

* It tracks the traditional legal writing course syllabus, providing students with the necessary structure for organizing a legal discussion.
* The consistent use of the legal method approach, from an opening chapter providing an overview of a civil case and the lawyer s role, to information about the legal system, case briefing, synthesizing cases, and statutory interpretation.
* The emphasis on analogical reasoning and synthesizing cases, as well as rule-based and policy-based reasoning, with explanations of how to use these types of reasoning to organize a legal discussion.
* Coverage of the use of precedent, particularly on how to use cases.
* Superior discussion of small-scale organization, including the thesis paragraph.
* Numerous examples and frequent short exercises to encourage students to apply concepts. Many exercises focus on first-year courses and others focus on professional responsibility. The Third Edition offers:

o New material on drawing factual inferences, one of the most important kinds of reasoning for legal writers.
o Citation materials updated to cover the new editions of both ALWD and the Bluebook.
