This is a powerful, accessible and practical book that breaks law school learning strategies into understandable, logical and practical steps that maximize the effect of students’ study efforts, and explicitly ties those learning strategies to the strategies practicing lawyers use to understand, analyze and apply legal concepts in the real- life representation of their clients. Students who employ its methods not only improve their law school performances and increase their chances of passing the bar on their first try, but they also come to understand the practical implica- tions of their hard work for the transition into the real world of practice, where clients entrust to lawyers the protection of their rights, their property, liberties, sometimes even their lives. In other words, students will learn how to practice law while pursuing success in studying law.

Modern Legal Drafting

A Guide to Using Clearer Language

Author: Peter Butt,Richard Castle

Publisher: Cambridge University Press

ISBN: 9781139459402

Category: Law

Page: N.A

View: 2917

In the second edition of this highly regarded text, the authors show how and why traditional legal language has developed the peculiar characteristics that make legal documents inaccessible to the end users. Incorporating recent research and case law, the book provides a critical examination of case law and the rules of interpretation. Detailed case studies illustrate how obtuse or outdated words, phrases and concepts can be rewritten, reworked or removed altogether. Particularly useful is the step-by-step guide to drafting in the modern style, using examples from four types of common legal documents: leases, company constitutions, wills and conveyances. Readers will gain an appreciation of the historical influences on drafting practice and the use of legal terminology. They will learn about the current moves to reform legal language, and receive clear instruction on how to make their writing clearer and their legal documents more useful.

The Handbook of Crime & Punishment

Author: Michael H. Tonry

Publisher: Oxford University Press on Demand

Crime is one of the most significant political issues in contemporary American society. Crime control statistics and punishment policies are subjects of constant partisan debate, while the media presents sensationalized stories of criminal activity and over-crowded prisons. In the highly politicized arena of crime and justice, empirical data and reasoned analysis are often overlook or ignored. The Handbook of Crime and Punishment, however, provides a comprehensive overview of criminal justice, criminology, and crime control policy, thus enabling a fundamental understanding of crime and punishment essential to an informed public. Expansive in its coverage, the Handbook presents materials on crime and punishment trends as well as timely policy issues. The latest research on the demography of crime (race, gender, drug use) is included and weighty current problems (organized crime, white collar crime, family violence, sex offenders, youth gangs, drug abuse policy) are examined. Processes and institutions that deal with accused and convicted criminals and techniques of punishment are also examined. While some articles emphasize American research findings and developments, others incorporate international research and offer a comparative perspective from other English-speaking countries and Western Europe. Editor Michael Tonry, a leading scholar of criminology, introduces the 28 articles in the volume, each contributed by an expert in the field. Designed for a wide audience, The Handbook is encyclopedic in its range and depth of content, yet is written in an accessible style. The most inclusive and authoritative work on the topic to be found in one volume, this book will appeal to those interested in the study of crime and its causes, effects, trends, and institutions; those interested in the forms and philosophies of punishment; and those interested in crime control.

Welche Faktoren bringen uns dazu, das zu tun, was andere von uns wollen? Und welche Techniken machen von diesen Faktoren am wirksamsten Gebrauch? In seinem Bestseller “Die Psychologie des Überzeugens” beschäftigt sich Robert B. Cialdini - der zunächst in den Bereichen Verkauf, Fundraising und Werbung praktische Erfahrungen sammelte und heute Professor für Sozialpsychologie ist - mit Theorie und Praxis des Überzeugens. Frühere Ausgaben des Buches wurden für ihre gute Lesbarkeit, ihre praktischen Anregungen sowie ihre wissenschaftliche Genauigkeit hoch gelobt und haben eine große Leserschaft unter Wirtschaftsfachleuten, Fundraising-Spezialisten und Menschen mit Interesse an Psychologie gefunden. Die vorliegende Neuausgabe enthält: - doppelt so viele Berichte von Leserinnen und Lesern über deren persönliche Erfahrungen mit den im Buch beschriebenen Prinzipien - neue Beispiele aus den Bereichen Populärkultur und neue Technologien sowie - mehr darüber, wie Gesetzmäßigkeiten der Beeinflussung in unterschiedlichen Kulturen zum Ausdruck kommen.
