The cover of the new sixth edition of Charles Calleros's book on Legal Method and Writing (Aspen Publishers) is a picture of bricks. The bricks are a metaphor for court cases (and other sources of legal authority). But beyond an attractive cover, the book (one of the leading ones in the field) has been revised to include new materials (such as how to write an email memo) and an expanded section on how to deal with legal uncertainty.
If you're not familiar with the book, you can click here for more information (and, if you teach legal writing, to request an examination copy). Charles will be one of the speakers at the Rocky Mountain Legal Writing Conference being held in Las Vegas from March 25-26, 2011. He'll be talking about "Teaching Traditional Office Memoranda in an Age of E-mail Memos."
