If the premise of a novel revolves around an unusual legal problem created by a particular statute, is it legal writing? It's writing, and it's about a legal topic. And it's almost Labor Day weekend, and you may be looking for something to read at the beach or at the lake. So you could say you're reading legal writing if you get ahold of a copy of Year Zero by Rob Reid. If you are not into SciFi, don't be scared off. This book is like the early Harry Potter books in tone, only with a variety of quirky space aliens instead of wizards. It also has both a lot of references to popular music from the decade right after 1977 and quite a few footnotes.
