In addition to a standard first-year legal writing curriculum, most law schools now require upper-level students to write a sophisticated legal research paper on a topic of their choice. Students often struggle through the scholarly writing process, from finding a topic to polishing a final paper, and many never fully develop and defend a thesis. The third edition of Scholarly Writing: Ideas, Examples, and Execution offers a lifeline to students, guiding them through the process of constructing their legal research papers from start to finish. With over 10 years combined experience teaching scholarly writing to J.D. and LL.M. students, the authors identify common roadblocks for student writers, and offer advice and techniques for how to successfully overcome these roadblocks. Scholarly Writing: Ideas, Examples, and Execution covers 10 areas of law, aiming to reach students with varied interests. Topics include: constitutional law, ethics and technology, patent law, art law, immigration, property rights, arbitration agreements and employment, debt law, juries and verdicts, and government contract law.
