Learning Law: The Mastery of Legal Logic
Being a lawyer requires understanding the process of the law — a mastery of legal logic — rather than knowing masses of substantive material. Authors Margulies and Lasson explain legal logic to readers in a concise and analytic manner. Flow charts give a clear overview of the process, allowing students to understand how and where every issue fits. Also included are brief summaries of various areas of law. Finally, model questions and answers from past bar examinations illustrate the steps outlined in the book.
A careful reading of the text should demystify the law school curriculum and offer a clear approach to solving legal problems. A reviewer describes Learning Law as "the book to take with you to law school." Learning Law provides a useful conceptual framework for beginning law students or third-year students beginning to review for the bar exam.
