IRAC and its variations

TurnerIn the fall 2012 issue of JALWD, Tracy Turner of Southwestern presents an interesting analysis of IRAC and its permutations. She lists twenty variations of the mnemonic device and discusses the reasoning behind each. She also identifies four organizational methods on which most legal-writing textbooks agree: rule-centered analysis, separation of discrete issues, synthesis of case law, and unity. Turner suggests that these might be better guides than “dogmatic adherence to a particular acronym.”
