Resource: Reading Like a Lawyer, Second Edition

Many of us have recommended Ruth Ann McKinney's book, Reading Like a Lawyer: Time-Saving Strategies for Reading Law Like an Expert, to our students over the past seven years.  If you have not taken a look at the second edition of the book, I would encourage you to do so. 

Ruth Ann has added a chapter which has very interesting observations about dealing with technology in our reading of law on a screen.  In addition to referencing studies about reading on-line, she also gives practical tips for the three new literacy skills needed: mastering technology, making wise choices about what to read and how deeply to read, and managing one's energy. 

Ruth Ann McKinney is a Clinical Professor of Law Emeritus at UNC School of Law.  For many years before her retirement, Ruth Ann was a mainstay and inspiration to our ASP community.  We are all so glad that she is still active through her writing and listserv comments.  (Amy Jarmon)
