Advanced Legal Writing: Theories and Strategies in Persuasive Writing is an exceptional legal writing tool. The author's distinctive approach:

Emphasizes persuasive writing strategies and explores specific techniques for legal writers;
Avoids a "documents-based" approach going beyond the trial or appellate brief to identify effective strategies for a broad range of documents and settings;
Detailed, "how-to" guidelines for students to use in their own writing;
Numerous examples of proper use of the strategy and exercises;
Consideration of ethical implications.

The book is divided into five main parts that cover:

Literacy allusion and its value in persuasive writing;
The three basic processes of persuasion: logic and rational argument, emotional argument, and establishing credibility;
Rhetorical style;
Persuasiave writing strategies based on psychology theory;
The moral implications of being an effective persuasive writer.
