Legal Reasoning and Writing

Principles and Exercises for the German Student of the Common Law

By Steven Riess

The principles of legal reasoning, together with an understanding of their practical application, form the foundation for a sound understanding of the functioning of the American common law. This book integrates theory and practice by combining the realistic journal entries of a fictitious young associate at a typical law firm with a thorough exploration of the principles which underlie his activities. The material in this thoughtful yet easily understood text has been specifically designed for the German student of the common law to provide realistic insight into how legal problems are actually approached in practice.
