Explaining Rules of Law: Add an E to Your IRAC

Wojcik_markHere's an article that I wrote in the ABA Student Lawyer Magazine.  It shows law students how they can "explain" rules of law in memoranda, briefs, and law school examinations.  Click here to download the article.  The article is called "Add an E to Your IRAC."

If you would like to introduce students to SSRN as a research tool, you can also share this link with them (for example, in a handout or in your syllabus).  http://ssrn.com/abstract=1196462.  Students learn how to search for articles on LexisNexis and Westlaw, but I think we could also do them a great service by teaching them how to search for articles on SSRN.
