New scholarship by Bret Rappaport, 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, 25 T.M. Cooley L. Rev. 267-302 (2008).
DePaul adjunct prof Rappaport uses the recent best-seller The Kite Runner to illustrate "how a non-legal novel used as part of a legal-writing class can stimulate the innate legal writer."
I hope to pick up some good ideas for my summer class in persuasive legal writing.
