Every client has a story. Your Client's Story: Effective Legal Writing, Third Edition, shows students how to tell that story effectively. The process of creating client-centered legal communication--from investigating facts and synthesizing the law, to document design--is essential, both for counseling clients and advocating on their behalf. With an engaging style and plenty of examples to illustrate fundamental concepts, this text explores how narrative theory, brain science, and classical rhetoric get to the heart of what makes legal thinking and writing truly effective.

Extending coverage to first-semester Legal Writing, the Third Edition includes

  • Predictive legal writing through the lens of narrative theory 
  • Analogical reasoning with step-by-step explanations of 
    • case synthesis, and
    • applying a rule of law to the facts of your client's case.
  • Updated and expanded coverage of 
    •  logical fallacies,
    •  the foundations of legal reasoning and the legal system,
    • stare decisis, and
    • mandatory versus persuasive authority.
  • Revised organization tracks the process of legal thinking and writing
