Book Description

Workshops on how to achieve academic success have been presented by Peter T. Wendel at over thirty-five different law schools across the country. He teaches students how to think like lawyers and how to take law school exams by providing a variety of tried-and-true methods, including a one-of-a-kind model for visually analyzing legal analysis, in his book titled Deconstructing Legal Analysis: A 1L Primer. The book “Deconstructing Legal Analysis: A 1L Primer” includes the following elements: a one-of-a-kind, visually-oriented instructional approach that illustrates a relational analysis of facts, rules, and public policy; an interactive instructional strategy that persistently encourages students to write down their responses to carefully guided questions; and an extensive glossary that defines key terms and concepts. Pierson v. Post is an excellent teaching case that demonstrates the difference between the way a layperson reads a case and the way a lawyer would read the same case. IRAC and IRRAC exam-taking tips and guidance that emphasize flexibility rather than a formulaic approach are useful templates and methods for legal analysis and essay-exam writing. Other useful templates and methods for legal analysis and essay-exam writing include If you believe that real-world experience is the most valuable form of education, then Deconstructing Legal Analysis is an absolute necessity for achieving academic success in law school.
