The goal of the text is to help students develop the case reading and vocabulary strategies they will need to compete and succeed in an American law school." "Strategies for Legal Case Reading & Vocabulary Development begins with an overview of the American legal system and relevant research and guidelines relating to case reading. The book is divided into sections on common law, statutory law, and constitutional law. Approximately twenty cases (some abridged) and eight readings are included in the text. Questions for Discussion follow each case to help students prepare to actively participate in class case discussions. Additional features include hypothetical (often posed by law professors), vocabulary tasks, and short writing assignments."--BOOK JACKET." ;
