The sixth edition has been streamlined and designed to be reader friendly: Customer Book Reviews this book is mostly useless but you will buy it anyway because your teacher By Jopi on Sep 17, if you did well in an english class, this book is mostly useless but you will buy it anyway because your teacher said so Good guide for clear and concise legal writing By Anthony on Nov 15, Let's be honest, you're going to buy this book because it's required for your class.
What I say doesn't really matter. However, I think this is a pretty good book. I'm actually going to keep this book, unlike my casebooks. If you are a solid writer and maybe you think you are, but maybe you're nota significant portion of the material is redundant. Topic sentences, paragraph structure, and that sort of stuff.
However, it's not bad to be reminded of that stuff when you're trying to adjust your style to writing legal arguments. It's an easy book to read. Every complicated idea is made simpler through step by step examples.
They also have some nice sections at the end about how to write specific legal documents like a demand letter or appellate brief. The one criticism I have is that the section on small scale organization is rather cursory.
The IRAC format is one of the most important things you can learn in legal writing. IRAC by whatever name it's called is a straightforward style, but given the importance, I wish the book had addressed it more thoroughly and directly.
