This is a different kind of book about legal writing. It assumes its readers are good writers who have already absorbed most of the usual advice about legal writing. But they may lack the intellectual framework for 'thinking like a writer' with the same incisiveness with which they think like a lawyer. This book provides that framework. It focuses on the underlying principles for communicating complicated information clearly and for establishing your credibility with demanding audiences. As a result, it helps to transform good writers into first-rate ones, and to make them far more efficient and powerful editors of their own writing and of others' drafts. Its unique approach will benefit supervising lawyers who do more editing than writing, as well as lawyers who do their own drafting.

Naming What We Know: Threshold Concepts of Writing Studies, published in 2015, contributed to a discussion about the relevance of identifying key concepts and ideas of writing studies. (Re)Considering What We Know continues that conversation while simultaneously raising questions about the ideas around threshold concepts. Contributions introduce new concepts, investigate threshold concepts as a framework, and explore their use within and beyond writing. Part 1 raises questions about the ideologies of consensus that are associated with naming threshold concepts of a discipline. Contributions challenge the idea of consensus and seek to expand both the threshold concepts framework and the concepts themselves. Part 2 focuses on threshold concepts in action and practice, demonstrating the innovative ways threshold concepts and a threshold concepts framework have been used in writing courses and programs. Part 3 shows how a threshold concepts framework can help us engage in conversations beyond writing studies. (Re)Considering What We Know raises new questions and offers new ideas that can help to advance the discussion and use of threshold concepts in the field of writing studies. It will be of great interest to scholars and graduate students in writing studies, especially those who have previously engaged with Naming What We Know.
