In addition, students can use the techniques they’ve learned to deconstruct, interpret, and revise any kind of legal document composed of rules.

Putting Skills Into Practice: Legal Problem Solving and Writing for New Lawyers is a concise new book that can be used either as the main text for an advanced legal writing course focused on preparing practice-ready documents, or as a reference for new associates. The author, Daniel L. Barnett of the William S. Richardson School of Law, University of Hawaii, has consulted at a variety of law firms. He has found that new lawyers often struggle to complete the projects they are assigned, often because they do not understand how to apply the skills and knowledge they acquired in law school. This step-by-step guide leads advanced legal writing students and new associates through the process of completing typical assignments. It begins with the essential legal process question of determining the law that applies to the issue at hand and then guides readers through sophisticated questions of how to handle unclear analysis in different types of legal documents.

Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 1983 im Fachbereich Soziologie - Familie, Frauen, Männer, Sexualität, Geschlechter, Note: 2,0, Philipps-Universität Marburg, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: Es wird nicht wenig über die Situation und Stellung der Frau in islamischen Ländern gerätselt, so daß trotz einer Fülle von Literatur immer wieder diesbezüglich offene Fragen aufkommen. Lassen sich die Frauen in solchen Ländern vom gesellschaftlichen Leben ausschließen, wie es durch die Verschleierung unterstellt wird? Ist ihre Benachteiligung bereits im Koran vorherbestimmt? Gibt es eine Kluft zwischen Vorschriften und deren Praxis, welche ihr Dasein beeinflußt? Inwieweit spielen Traditionen in ihrem Leben eine Rolle? Welche Rechte und Verantwortungen kommen ihnen als Ehepartnerin, Mutter, oder Tochter zu? Wie sieht ihre Teilnahme am öffentlichen Leben aus? Welche Erziehungs- und Ausbildungsmöglichkeiten und Grenzen sind in ihrem Fall zu benennen? Inwieweit sind sie wirtschaftlich und politisch von Männern abhängig? Es wurde oft versucht für solche Fragen Antworten zu finden, doch zeigen gegensätzliche Meinungen über das Frauenleben in islamischen Gesellschaften, daß vieles, wie das Frauenhaupt, sich noch hinter einem Schleier befindet. Hierbei gilt es besonders zu berücksichtigen, daß der Islam den Anspruch erhebt, sowohl Religion (Jenseitsvorstellung) als auch ein rechtliches und politisches System (säkulare Ordnung) zu sein . Daraus folgt, daß das Leben der Frau umso mehr festgelegt ist, je mehr alle gesellschaftlichen Bereiche durch dieses System geregelt werden. Gesellschaftliche Konflikte entstehen dadurch, daß der Islam weltliche Angelegenheiten durch göttlich eingegebene Weisungen regeln will, welche den Anspruch erheben, allgemeingültig und zeitlos zu sein, aber dennoch in verschiedenen Zeitspannen mit unterschiedlichen Akzenten ausgelegt werden und ausgelegt worden sind. Somit wird in dieser Arbeit versucht, die Stellung der Frau im Koran zu durchleuchten, da dieser die Hauptquelle des Gesetzes und der Ideologie in allen islamischen Gesellschaften darstellt.

Legal Reasoning, Research, and Writing for International Graduate Students helps readers understand and approach legal research and writing assignments the way attorneys do in the United States. Since most students will have studied civil law and some comparative law, but are unfamiliar with U.S. legal culture, the book begins by comparing common and civil law and then builds practical skills on this foundation. This comparative law perspective helps explain unique and important features of the United States legal system. Chapters are short and clear, and repeat the major points to aid, in particular, LL.M. candidates who are not native English speakers. A methodology of research and writing in preparing legal documents is presented, and reasoning and writing methods are based on standard IRAC analysis used by many instructors. To allow instructors to discuss citation requirements as they become needed, citation format information is integrated into the text. An important discussion of plagiarism and U.S. law school honor codes addresses subjects that surprise LL.M. students from cultures with a wide variety of norms and standards. As the Internet is likely to be the only legal research source available to foreign attorneys accessing U.S. law from their countries of origin,most of the exercises in each chapter can be done on the Web as well as in the law library, with either commercial or non-commercial websites. Charts and summaries can be used as helpful reference tools. The Third Edition offers suggestions and exercises to gain confidence and participate in U.S. classrooms. Research chapters are updated to include more in-depth international research explanations and exercises. More in-depth examples and exercises demonstrate drafting contracts. An expanded and revised chapter on the use of case method includes a synthesis of international case law, such as WTO appellate opinions and CISG interpretation. A new section on legal changes includes indications of success and failure. Hallmark features of Legal Reasoning, Research, and Writing for International Graduate Students: Helps international students understand and approach legal research and writing assignments the way attorneys do in the United States Uses a comparative law perspective to explain unique and important features of the United States legal system begins by comparing common and civil law builds on this foundation with practical skills assumes the reader has studied law but is unfamiliar with U.S. legal culture Helps LL.M. candidates who are not native English speakers, in particular features chapters that are short and clear repeat the major points for greater comprehension Includes methodology of research and writing componentsin preparing legal documents bases reasoning andwriting components on standard IRAC analysis integrates citation format information into the text Incorporates discussion of plagiarism and U.S. law school honor codes helpful when teaching students from a wide variety of cultures Includes exercises in each chapter to apply new skills to practical problems exercises can be done in the law library or on the Internet, with commercial or non-commercial Websites the Internet is likely the only legal research source available to foreign attorneys accessing US law from their countries of origin Provides charts and summaries as reference tools
