Description
Peter T. Wendel has taught academic success workshops at over thirty-five law schools throughout the country. In Deconstructing Legal Analysis: A 1L Primer, he provides a variety of time-tested techniques-including a unique model for visualizing legal analysis-to teach students how to think like lawyers and take law school exams.

 

Deconstructing Legal Analysis: A 1L Primer features:

  • a unique, visual pedagogical method that illustrates a relational analysis of facts, rules, and public policy
  • an interactive approach that consistently encourages students to write down their answers to carefully guided questions
  • a great teaching case, Pierson v. Post, showing how a layperson reads a case as compared to how a lawyer would read the same case
  • useful templates and methods for legal analysis and essay-exam writing, such as IRAC and IRRAC
  • exam-taking tips and guidance that emphasize flexibility, rather than a formulaic approach

If experience is the best teacher, then Deconstructing Legal Analysis is an essential for academic success in law school.
