Professor Christine Coughlin Publishes New Book: A Lawyer Writes

Professor Christine Coughlin’s new book, A Lawyer Writes: A Practical Guide to Legal Analysis, has been published by Carolina Academic Press.  Professor Coughlin’s coauthors are Professors Joan Malmud of University of Oregon School of Law and Sandy Patrick of Lewis and Clark School of Law.   The book teaches law students and new lawyers how to assess the merits of a legal problem and how to communicate that assessment to other attorneys.  These skills, the authors note, form the “cornerstone” of an attorney’s work.
