the jurisprudential essay

JLEBanner A form of legal writing not familiar to most U.S. legal writers is the essay on jurisprudence, i.e., an essay on legal philosophy.  Volume 58, number 3, of the Journal of Legal Education includes a fascinating article on this writing format and its most desirable characteristics:  On Writing:  The Essay in Jurisprudence, by U.K. professor Claire Grant.  Much of the advice will ring true to any U.S. attorney or legal writing professor who ordinarily focuses on law practice documents.
