Strategy for drafting legal letters (V)

The achievement of success in legal practice depends on more than your merely knowing the law. As Professor Kingsfield famously said in The Paper Chase, law students come to law schools with a ‘skull full of mush’ and by a process of legal training only do they achieve its figurative demushing. Merriam Webster defines ‘mush’ as being something soft and spongy or shapeless. Your clients will want to see the contours of your argument and will not be impressed by a shapeless mushy mess and so the letters you write should define the question you are being paid to consider, the relevant legal principles, and, most importantly the analytic path showing how the law is applied to those facts. This module explores how an understanding of the I-R-A-C formula will help you achieve all this.
