Legal Writing and Legal Skills
for Foreign LL.M. Students


Coming Soon! Additional Units, Client Matters and Other Exercises!



Karen Lundquist's Legal Writing and Legal Skills for Foreign LL.M. Students Welcome to the casebook companion website for Legal Writing and Legal Skills for Foreign LL.M. Students.

The Legal Writing and Legal Skills textbook is unlike others that you've likely used, and that your students have used as well. The book creates a fictitious world in the state of Jefferson. The students act as associate attorneys working at the law firm of Lincoln, Adams and Washington, representing various business clients. The book will present not just legal writing exercises and opportunities for students to develop their legal writing and legal analysis skills, but also includes many other skills-building exercises such as mock client interviews, mock negotiations, and mock oral arguments. The exercises will help LLM students learn about the law and improve their English.

ESL Workbook, Legal Writing and Legal Skills
for Foreign LL.M. Students


Karen Lundquist's ESL Workbook, Legal Writing and Legal Skills for Foreign LL.M. Students The ESL Workbook accompanies the Main Assignment File book and the commented cases and legal authority. Every case that the students read for the client matters has a worksheet, which includes key vocabulary and legal terminology already defined to assist the students in reading and save them time (the defined words are highlighted in the text of the cases), as well as pre-reading and comprehension questions to help the students understand the case and the analysis made, and think about how the case applies to the client matter. Finally, each case has a Legal, Language or Grammar Focus exercise that will deepen the students' understanding of legal English, the law and English grammar and writing. Examples of the exercises include predictive vs. persuasive language, Germanic vs. Latin-based words in English, eliminating legalese and writing in plain legal English, punctuation (hyphens, en-dash and em-dash), definite and indefinite articles, and citations.
