This workbook will help develop two essential lawyering skills: objective analysis and writing. Providing ample foundation in every chapter followed by exercises, Becoming a Lawyer is designed to complement any legal writing book or be used as a standalone text for academic support or pre-law instruction. Students will learn fundamental lawyering skills such as formulating questions to ask clients upon intake, exploring research strategies into systems of law, developing critical reading skills for statutes and cases, briefing cases, extrapolating implicit and explicit rules, synthesizing rules, organizing and applying the law into objective written analysis, and polishing their writing.
