a pre-orientation reading

Kerr_orin07_2 Professor Orin Kerr at George Washington University has written an excellent article to include in whatever packet of reading material is snail-mailed or electronically posted for your incoming 1L's over the summer:  How to Read a Legal Opinion, 11 Green Bag 2d 50 (Autumn 2007).  The very clear, basic explanations of what is in a written judicial opinion might also be helpful for family, friends, or clients who are not lawyers.

hat tip:  Professor James Duggan, Southern Illinois University
