The second edition continues to teach students the critical skills of legal reasoning. This popular book is a practical and clear guide that explains the many ways lawyers analyze the law. The authors demystify legal analysis by examining the foundations and methodology of legal problem solving, and by discussing the different levels of critical thinking necessary to develop effective legal arguments. The book emphasizes the importance of applying the law as opposed to relying excessively on formulaic methods of analysis. New to the second edition, the book will examine rule-based reasoning and the embedded rule; examine deductive analysis and resolving statutory ambiguity; examine case-law reasoning and inductive analysis; examine the role of policy in legal argument; examine the structure and variations of legal argument and CREAC; and offer new examples and exercises.

    I have been in practice for six years and I wish I had this book when I was a first-year law student. It’s concise yet packed full of information. Legal analysis is a difficult skill for law students and this book expertly helps unravel some its mysteries. I bought the book for a newer associate at my firm and he loves it. In fact, his writing and analysis has improved dramatically. I read the CREAC chapter with particular interest. I learned that I naturally draft legal documents in the CREAC format; so it certianly applies to practice. If more lawyers (and judges) adopted the CREAC format, we’d all benefit. Thank you.
