Logic for Lawyers: A Guide to Clear Legal Thinking by Ruggero J. Aldisert


“To win in court, you must master the elements of legal logic – the ultimate tool of persuasion in the courtroom.” In Logic for Lawyers: A Guide to Clear Legal Thinking, Senior U.S. Circuit Judge Ruggero J. Aldisert tells how to use legal reasoning to persuade judges and juries.

A 30-year veteran of the bench, Aldisert helps litigators understand and apply the elements of legal logic. Using these skills, you can argue more persuasively – both in briefs and before the court. And just as critically, you can also expose flaws in adversaries' arguments.

The result? A competitive edge in the courtroom. Rather than miring readers in exotic formulas and theories often found in logic texts, Aldisert explains in broad strokes the basics of logic and its application to legal thinking. You'll gain important insight into the mental processes we use in “thinking like a lawyer.”

Editorial Review

Developing good legal reasoning habits is essential to a quality law practice. Judge Aldisert examines legal thinking from a variety of perspectives to help guide lawyers through appropriate reasoning patterns. One reviewer says the book “provides a shortcut to understanding the basics of legal reasoning, including the common law doctrine of precedent, identifying weaknesses in legal arguments, and fashioning winning arguments through syllogisms.” –David Marshall Nissman, J.D.
