How can I learn to write like a law school student?


Answer by  justme21 (130)

The best thing you can do is study and practice! First, start by reading some books, articles and papers by law students or lawyers. Read a variety of things. Then, start writing! No one writes like a pro the first time they try, so don't give up!

One way to learn to write like a law student is to look at examples of writing from said law students. You may also find reading law books and articles very helpful. Another great idea would be to take some courses in law to learn some of the terms associated with law.

You must learn to write at a Graduate/Master's level. Using legal terminology is another matter and you can find books on that.

Learn the different laws in your state/province, and also read up on various court documents. In addition, learn law "lingo."

The rule of thumb is IRAC. First, set forth the issues, then the rules. analyze the facts as they relate to the rules. Finally, write your resolution of the issue.
