For courses in legal research and writing.

By integrating the basics of legal research, legal analysis and legal writing, this book clarifies the interrelationship of these three competencies and allows students to experience the total legal research process. Its goal is to provide readers with the basic knowledge and tools needed to research and analyze a legal problem and communicate the results of that research and analysis in different types of legal memoranda. Included in the text are skill-building exercises, sample law book pages and a built-in legal dictionary. This edition features expanded coverage of legal writing, a new chapter on legal correspondence, more on computer assisted legal research, and new appendices that reinforce the integrated approach of the text.
