Learning Legal Reasoning: Briefing, Analysis and Theory

  • Edition : 4th ed., 2011
  • Author(s) : Delaney
Too many first-year students misconceive the nature and purpose of law and law school. Many beliefs of beginning students about law school are false or at least misleading. These misconceptions lead to an enormous waste of studying time, blunders in class, exacerbation of beginner's confusion, and a defective preparation for exams. Learning Legal Reasoning is designed to get you started ahead of your peers:

The cosmos of legal reasoning is in the technique of briefing. It is impossible therefore to learn how to brief without learning about legal reasoning—about learning to read, think, talk and write like a lawyer. Hence, the first chapter in this book is less about the technique of briefing and more about why briefing is important:

To enable you to understand cases;
To help you understand what happens in class and why;
To introduce you to the basic skills necessary for legal reasoning;
To get you on the right track and to avoid unnecessary confusion.
