Writing By Numbers

Legal Writing Made Easy

by Melissa Shultz, Christine Tamer

Forthcoming January 2020 paper

Tags: First Year, Legal Research, Legal Writing

Given the reality that legal writing is difficult for most new law students, Writing by Numbers: Legal Writing Made Easy aims to demystify the writing process by providing concrete formulas for mastering objective and persuasive legal writing. Put simply, at each juncture of your journey to become a proficient legal writer, this book gives you a roadmap to follow, broadly starting with the macro-formula CRAC (Conclusion, Rule, Analysis, and Conclusion) and then moving to micro-formulas for each part of the macro formula. Our goal is that you will never find yourself lost—that is, you will never find yourself facing an entirely blank page without direction.
