This concise book 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 Hawai'i, 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.
