Law school professors often don't tell students what they need to learn from a court's opinion, and instead expect students to learn from reading and discussing court opinions. This book provides law students with a framework for reading, discussing, and analyzing court opinions in first-year courses, focusing on six types of arguments often used by courts, lawyers, and professors to resolve legal issues. Examples of classroom question-and-answer exchanges between professors and students, and the explanations that follow them, illustrate what students should learn from class discussions. The book also provides examples of how what students learn from reading court opinions can be helpful in law school exams and later in law practice. Material is presented in sections on legal rule application, legal rule creation, and judicial decision making and client counseling. A companion web site provides examples of case briefs of court opinions in subjects addressed in first-year courses. The book can be used as a companion text in a first-year course, as a text in a legal methods or academic support course, or as background for a law school orientation program. A teacher's manual is available. Moore and Binder are professors of law at the University of California-Los Angeles. The book is co-published by Aspen Publishers.
