Teaching Materials
The Fourth Edition of Examples & Explanations: Legal Writing explains what many professors consider to be effective writing, following the organization of typical first-year legal writing courses, and provides concrete examples for students to test their understanding of key legal writing concepts. Each chapter includes a checklist that can be easily transformed into a grading grid as well as chapter-by-chapter vocabulary that integrates your classroom instruction with these examples. This book--whether the entire book, selected chapters, or subsets of chapters--can accompany any legal writing textbook or materials you provide for your students. 

A favorite classroom prep tool of successful students that is often recommended by professors, the Examples& Explanations series has been ranked the most popular study aid among law students because it is equally as helpful from the first day of class through the final exam.

New to the Fourth Edition:
  • New chapters on common law and on writing conclusion sections in persuasive documents
  • Revised and updated with legal writing professors in mind, including revisions that work whether assigning single chapters or the entire book
  • New common law assignments with many added examples and explanations throughout the book 

Professors and students will benefit from:
  • Understanding how the writing students do in law school (and law practice) differs from what they did in college
  • Professors knowing the right way to use examples, although they may hesitate to give examples
  • Learning how to practice revising and rewriting--skills that are necessary to all good writing
  • Demonstrations of how to self-evaluate, self-explain, and self-test
  • Having the tools to continue to learn about legal writing after formal instruction ends
