While Thinking and Writing About Law is primarily geared toward law students, it should be accessible for anyone who wants to improve their abilities in legal analysis and communication. Written in an approachable, no-nonsense style, the book is divided into two parts.

The first part guides readers toward an understanding of legal analysis in our common-law system. Properly conceptualizing our system of law is the most fundamental—and overlooked—component in the process of legal analysis. To that end, the book walks the reader step-by-step through the analytical process and then reinforces the reader’s understanding by introducing a novel technique for visualizing legal analysis.

The second part guides readers toward successful communicating their analyses to both inform and persuade. It draws upon the author’s experiences as both a legal writing professor and a supreme court justice to bring a distinctive blend of academic expertise and judicial practicality to the subject.
