Linda H. Edward and Samantha A. Moppett’s Legal Writing: Process, Analysis, and Organization, Eighth Edition, is an essential guide for legal writing students.

Samantha Moppett joins Linda Edwards, 2017 Burton Award recipient and renowned author on the Eighth Edition of Legal Writing: Process, Analysis, and Organization, the only legal writing text that uses a process approach, presenting writing as a logical sequence of steps. Streamlined to meet the needs of today’s students, the Eighth Edition uses adult learning theory concepts and a “flipped classroom” approach to add even greater focus and efficiency to classroom and study time.

New to the 8th Edition:

  • The process of writing a legal memo has been updated to include material on e-memos.
  • Information about the Native American tribes, the third sovereign entity in the United States, has been added.
  • The chapter on editing now includes a discussion of the proper use of they as a singular pronoun.
  • The citation chapter has been edited to reflect the rules in the new editions of the ALWD Guide to Legal Citation and The Bluebook.

Professors and students will benefit from:

  • Straightforward and succinct presentation of first-year legal writing topics
  • Approach to teaching reasoning and writing as two interrelated processes
  • Clear explanations and concrete examples that support a range of learning styles
  • Writing exercises that offer hands-on practice for skill development
  • Chapter on professional correspondence that provides guidance as to the appropriate use of e-mail and texts
  • Sample office memorandum, e-memo, letters, trial brief, and appellate brief, as well as the cases that were used in the examples, which are conveniently located in the Appendices

  • Teacher’s Manual
