Strategies for Legal Case Reading and Vocabulary Development

Susan M. Reinhart


Many law students feel that they are learning a new language during their first year of law school.  For those students who are not native English speakers this process can be even more overwhelming. Strategies for Legal Case Reading and Vocabulary Development was written to help students develop the case reading and vocabulary strategies they will need to compete and succeed in an American law school.

Strategies for Legal Case Reading and Vocabulary Development begins with an overview of the American legal system and relevant research and guidelines relating to case reading.  The book is divided into sections on common law, statutory law, and constitutional law. Approximately twenty cases (some abridged) and eight readings are included in the text. Questions for Discussion follow each case to help students prepare to actively participate in class case discussions. Additional features include hypotheticals (often posed by law professors), vocabulary tasks, and short writing assignments.
