Legal Reasoning and Objective Writing: A Comprehensive Approach is a textbook for the objective writing segment of a first-year legal writing class. It was written by two professors who have collaborated for many years and who between them have over 50 years of experience teaching legal analysis and writing. The chapters and accompanying optional closed-memo problem provide students with a sophisticated yet concrete step-by-step method to learn the analytical, organizational, and presentational skills necessary to convey legal analysis effectively. The book is written in a conversational manner to engage students and put them at ease so that they grasp difficult concepts easily. To illustrate the narrative, the book uses a variety of short examples throughout the chapters and includes sample documents in the appendices with comprehensive annotations keyed to relevant portions of the book. The accompanying optional introductory problem and related assignment materials utilize a “flipped-class” approach to guide students through the memo project independently, allowing teachers to adapt the problem to fit a variety of teaching sequences. --From website publisher.
