Putting Skills Into Practice: Legal Problem Solving and Writing for New Lawyers is a concise new book that can be used either as the main text for an advanced legal writing course focused on preparing practice-ready documents, or as a reference for new associates. The author, Daniel L. Barnett of the William S. Richardson School of Law, University of Hawaii, has consulted at a variety of law firms. He has found that new lawyers often struggle to complete the projects they are assigned, often because they do not understand how to apply the skills and knowledge they acquired in law school. This step-by-step guide leads advanced legal writing students and new associates through the process of completing typical assignments. It begins with the essential legal process question of determining the law that applies to the issue at hand and then guides readers through sophisticated questions of how to handle unclear analysis in different types of legal documents.

A time-tested, proven introduction, The Process of Legal Research acquaints students with all of the sources and relevant vocabulary and shows how each source works, how to combine sources into a cohesive research process, and how to resolve legal problems through effective techniques. Extensive illustrations and examples quickly engage students in actual research problems, as the text carefully demonstrates how research and writing are interrelated processes. The authors focus on teaching the best research practices, illustrating how to choose the appropriate source and media for each type of problem. Electronic research is completely integrated into the text. Students are given solid guidance for every type of situation, learning when and how to choose between paper and electronic research, and how the choice among different media can result in different access means, scope, and currency of materials. The Process of Legal Research offers extensive, well-researched problems sets, ideal for large programs that need plenty of exercise options for their students. Pages with problems sets are perforated for easy use. The Eighth Edition finds a sharper focus on the basics, asking and answering the questions, "What are the various forms of legal authority?" and "How does each contribute to resolving a client's legal problem?" A greater emphasis on how to choose the optimal research options for various authorities includes a mix of print and online as well as public and commercial resources. Each chapter includes a table of optimal research options. The Eighth Edition skillfully interweaves smaller employment law problems faced by a firm throughout the text, rather than the single mega-problem of previous editions, and new flow-chart style charts illuminate much of the denser text. Citations are covered in citation boxes, reflecting both the Bluebook and ALWD. In a leaner writing style designed appeal to modern students, the Eighth Edition confronts some of the most current hot topics, such as how people think about research today and what firms find wanting in new lawyers research abilities. Hallmark features: Provides a complete introduction to the process of legal research the sources and vocabulary of legal research how each source works how to combine sources into a research process how to resolve legal problems through effective research techniques Extensive illustrations and examples of actual research problems Teaches the best research practices how to choose the appropriate source and media for various types of problems Integrates electronic research discusses when and how to choose between paper and electronic research shows how the choice among media results in different access means, scope, and currency of materials Includes extensive, well-researched problems sets

This book fills an important niche in legal-writing literature by teaching law students how to write scholarly papers for seminars, law reviews, and law-review competitions and how to have their work recognized. It helps novices and more experienced scholars alike to write papers with a minimum of anxiety and a maximum of creativity. Employing a process theory of writing, the text first describes the enterprise of scholarly writing and then discusses techniques for brainstorming topics and theses, researching, drafting, and revising for substance and style. It covers both traditional doctrinal topics and newer areas like empirical studies. There are also chapters on footnotes, avoiding plagiarism, law review practice, and dissemination of student work through publication and submission to national writing competitions. Appendices provide a sample law-review competition paper, answers to in-text exercises, sample syllabi for scholarly writing courses, and a rubric for evaluating and editing scholarly papers and articles.
