The Murray and DeSanctis titles are designed for the current generation of law students whose familiarity and comfort with on-line and computer-based learning create a demand for teaching resources that take advantage of that familiarity and comfort level. Advanced Legal Writing and Advocacy: Trials, Appeals, and Moot Court is designed for second semester and upper-division advanced writing courses involving advocacy and oral argument at the trial and appellate levels and in moot court competitions. This book employs the TREAT paradigm and doctrine of explanatory synthesis to maximize the persuasive potential of appellate-level legal writing for actual practice and for moot court competitions. It is well suited for use as a primary text in an upper division appellate advocacy or advanced writing course or moot court program, or as a primary or supplemental text for first year legal writing courses that focus on appellate advocacy as the pedagogical model to teach legal writing skills. Paired with the book is an electronic, computer-based version of the text that adds links to on-line databases and internet-based resources and supplements the text with pop-up definitions from Black?s Law Dictionary. The electronic version of the text is searchable and highly portable, with internal and external navigation links, making them more valuable for use in class and out. The interactive text employs a layout that departs from the traditional, all-text casebook format through use of callout text boxes, diagrams, and color/border segregated feature sections for hypotheticals, references to scholarly debates, or other useful information for law students. PLEASE NOTE: If you purchase a used, unsealed copy of this book, access to the electronic version of this book may require a separate purchase.
