The Five Types of Legal Argument

The Five Types of Legal Argument

Fourth Edition

by Wilson Huhn

Forthcoming April 2022 paper


Tags: Introduction to Law

Huhn demonstrates that there are five different types of legal arguments (based on text, intent, precedent, tradition and policy), and through myriad examples this book teaches law students, lawyers, and judges how to identify, create, attack, and evaluate each type of argument. The book contains useful advice and illustrations on how to weave the different types of arguments together to make them more persuasive. The book describes and explains how lawyers use logic, reasoning by analogy, and policy analysis in resolving progressively more difficult cases. The fourth edition of the book includes new chapters that illustrate policy arguments through the use of graphs and advise law students how to answer essay exam questions.
