Here's the books we use in our legal writing class, minus the style guide. On another thread in this board, Ruskie advised getting the 'Blue Book' - I think that's terrible advise. It won't make any sense, and will just exasperate and frustrate you needlessly. Further, not all law schools teach the Blue Book, so it may be completely irrelevant on top of the rest.Strunk and White - Elements of StyleRichard C. Wydick - Plain English for LawyersAmy E. Sloan - Basic Legal Research: Tools and StrategiesRichard K. Neumann, Jr. - Legal Reasoning and Legal Writing: Structure, Strategy, and StyleAlso, in our Legal Process (orientation) class, we read, John Makdisi - Introduction to the Study of Law: Cases and Materials. Gives you good background information about the legal system and a few cases in the major subject areas.
