Legal Writing: Getting It Right and Getting It Written is a legal writing aid that is in a class by itself. This book does not fall neatly into the five predictable classifications of legal writing texts: those on legal research, those devoted to brief writing and oral argument, those on how to take law examinations and brief cases, those aimed at polishing grammar and style, and those that treat the subject generally. While there is still no single text that will completely cover any legal writing course, the references in Legal Writing obviate the need for a grammar and style book and also bridge the gaps found in the other types of books.
