Synopsis
Legal Reasoning, Research, and Writing for International Graduate Students helps readers understand and approach legal research and writing assignments the way attorneys do in the United States. Since most students will have studied civil law and some comparative law, but are unfamiliar with U.S. legal culture, the book begins by comparing common and civil law and then builds practical skills on this foundation. This comparative law perspective helps explain unique and important features of the United States legal system. Chapters are short and clear, and repeat the major points to aid, in particular, LL.M. candidates who are not native English speakers. A methodology of research and writing in preparing legal documents is presented, and reasoning and writing methods are based on standard IRAC analysis used by many instructors. To allow instructors to discuss citation requirements as they become needed, citation format information is integrated into the text. An important discussion of plagiarism and U.S. law school honor codes addresses subjects that surprise LL.M. students from cultures with a wide variety of norms and standards. As the Internet is likely to be the only legal research source available to foreign attorneys accessing U.S. law from their countries of origin,most of the exercises in each chapter can be done on the Web as well as in the law library, with either commercial or non-commercial websites. Charts and summaries can be used as helpful reference tools.

The Third Edition offers suggestions and exercises to gain confidence and participate in U.S. classrooms. Research chapters are updated to include more in-depth international research explanations and exercises. More in-depth examples and exercises demonstrate drafting contracts. An expanded and revised chapter on the use of case method includes a synthesis of international case law, such as WTO appellate opinions and CISG interpretation. A new section on legal changes includes indications of success and failure.
