The Murray and DeSanctis titles are designed for the current generation of law students whose familiarity and comfort with on-line and computer-based learning create a demand for teaching resources that take advantage of that familiarity and comfort level.Legal Writing and Analysis
provides a process-based text covering all aspects of first year legal analysis and objective legal writing topics. It employs the TREAT paradigm and the doctrine of explanatory synthesis, designed with reference to rhetorical theory to maximize the effectiveness of audience-directed legal writing.
Paired with the book is an electronic, computer-based version of the text that adds links to on-line databases and internet-based resources and supplements the text with pop-up definitions from Black’s Law Dictionary. The electronic version of the text is searchable and highly portable, with internal and external navigation links, making them more valuable for use in class and out. The interactive text employs a layout that departs from the traditional, all-text casebook format through use of callout text boxes, diagrams, and color/border segregated feature sections for hypotheticals, references to scholarly debates, or other useful information for law students.For more information and additional teaching materials, visit the companion site.
