Among the features that make Legal Writing and Analysis a best-selling text :

* 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.

* 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:
