How should lawyers go about their task of working with law? Of interpreting, using, reading, writing and making law? Currently, lawyers learn techniques by trial and error. Lawyers are not taught technique at law school. What happens is clearly not best practice.
This book describes clear and simple techniques for working with law. It explains why each technique is needed and what it achieves, and then provides a model for employing it. Each model is a step-by-step guide to performing the relevant task.
Legal Technique is structured to be a text book in an introductory law course and is intended for re-use in later courses on substantive law where these techniques must be further practised.
