Legal writing can be challenging for many reasons. The language is complex, the concepts are even more complex, and you will be expected to manipulate both the language and the complex while adhering to specific writing formats.
But there is help available.
The Legal Studies Boxed Set contains the three Alison Plus Guides to Writing for the three types of legal documents most legal studies and paralegal students will have to write: demand letters, case briefs, and internal legal memos. Each document type has different challenges and goals, but now one collection makes all three writing guides available in one boxed set.
