Format: Paperback
Oates, Enquist, and Kunsch have published the third edition of The Legal Writing Handbook, one of the most comprehensive legal writing books available today. This book speaks powerfully about the entire legal writing process. There is a definite art and science to crafting legal documents and this book provides the detailed instruction necessary for legal professionals and law students to produce truly outstanding work.
Readers are briefly introduced to the American legal system in terms of government and court history, responsibilities, accountability, and the nature of both common and enacted laws. Then comes the real meat - performing legal research and analysis, making use of available printed and online resources, learning sound legal grammar, and instruction for crafting a variety of professional legal documents that lawyers write most often - legal advice memos, client letters, motion briefs, and appellate briefs.
The book is very helpful in terms of crafting legal documents. Readers will quickly pick up on how to select the right words and how to effectively structure their thoughts. Like the work of a sculptor or clay modeler, legal documents should be crafted in such a way as to convey the right message to the right people. Through a variety of gripping written examples the reader will learn just how important it is to devote quality time and to give serious thought to the legal writing process.
The book reveals in no uncertain terms that there are definite strategies involved in crafting legal documents. Whether one is an attorney for a plaintiff or defendant, a law enforcement officer, or prosecutor, the outcome of court cases can hinge on one's writing skills.

another false claim by amazon, since I clicked on the so-called one click option, today, september 11 and the delivery dates says sept 18-21. Is that a two day option? your company either cannot count or misleads the customer

Format: Paperback
I ordered my Legal Writing Book for law school on June 2nd. It was suppose to ship from Auburn, WA on June 4th to a business in Tacoma, WA. I never received the book. I had to wait until June 25th, before they would do anything for me, since they did not use a tracking number and kept insisting it might still be in transit. I was very disappointed and hated that they couldn't help me until the 21 days mark. Luckily, I was able to use a friends book in the mean time. I was able to get my money back with no hassle. It took about 5 days to show up in my account.
