Scholarship alert: "Tapping the Human Adaptive Origins of Storytelling by Requiring Legal Writing Students to Read a Novel in Order to Appreciate How Character, Setting, Plot, Theme and Tone (CSPTT) are as Important as IRAC"

Wow - that's a mouthful, but this one is sure to melt in your brain, not in your hands.  Authored by Professor Bret Rappaport, a partner in private practice who is also an adjunct legal writing professor at DePaul, it's an excellent read which carries the imprimatur of the Honorable Richard Posner who graciously reviewed a draft according to the author's credits.

I know Professor Rappaport from my days at the Journal of the Legal Writing Institute - he's a good guy - so pick up his article when you get a chance and give it a read, eh? You can find it in 25 T.M. Cooley L. Rev. 267 (2008) and on Lexis and Westlaw shortly.

I am the scholarship dude.
