Description for Logic for Lawyers : A Guide to Clear Legal Thinking

Amazon.com Review

Developing good legal reasoning habits is essential to a quality law practice. Judge Aldisert examines legal thinking from a variety of perspectives to help guide lawyers through appropriate reasoning patterns. One Amazon.com reviewer says the book "provides a shortcut to understanding the basics of legal reasoning, including the common law doctrine of precedent, identifying weaknesses in legal arguments, and fashioning winning arguments through syllogisms." --David Marshall Nissman, J.D.


"...an exposition of how the use or misuse of logic promotes or impairs the development of law..." -- Jeffrey W. Grove, Professor, Indiana University School of Law

"Logic for Lawyers is the product of a keen mind that has benefitted from opportunities to engage in and examine legal thinking from a variety of perspectives. This volume fills a surprising void in the current legal literature." -- Mark A. Nordenberg, Chancellor, University of Pittsburgh

"Logic for Lawyers points out the fallacies of which we are all guilty from time to time....It will aid in avoiding the development of bad habits in legal reasoning." -- Elizabeth H. Patterson, Professor, Georgetown University Law Center

"The book's constituency includes all who labor in the law--from apprentice to master craftsman--and care about understanding their work and doing a credible job." --Jeffrey W. Grove, Professor, Indiana University School of Law, Indianapolis
