Long DescriptionWriting for Law Practice organizes documents into three sections that correspond to the three major modes of written communication in the law Litigating, Informing and Persuading, and Rule-making each with its own signature writing skills. The organization of this text is both realistic and helpful to student and teacher. Part One focuses on pleadings and motions, where concept is primary and expression secondary. Part Two covers letters, memos, trial and appellate briefs, and judicial opinions, which require clarity and perseverance as well as creativity. Part Three covers contracts, legislation, and wills, where conceptualization is inextricable from clear and precise expression. Among the advantages of this organization is that it gives the teacher much flexibility in course design. New features of the second edition include a skills chapter on effective Document Design and its role in reader comprehension; a section in Contracts on negotiation that aims to provide boader context for transactional drafting; expanded discussions of tone and narrative in the Pleadings and Persuasion chapters; expanded coverage of e-mail communication; a section on living wills and health care proxies in the Wills chapter; and new exercises and assignments throughout.

We upgraded the database quite a bit. We are doing a better job of locating data around the web and for the most part. We have added links from one product to similar products to help you find what you are looking for.

So one thing you will see is that we have more links on the site and more images. We have improved our searching functions to give you more options.

Over the next few days we will be adding pricing information when we can get it for any given product.

We have also started linking more agressivly to Amazon. This is because people keep coming to the site trying to buy products. At first we were all about data with little interest in selling but since people are often trying to buy, we want to make it easier and besides, we make a couple bucks in the process.

We don't want to get in the way of the original goal of providing product and company data, but we want to provide you with as much other information as possible at the same time.
