Teaching Legal Analysis

David J. Herring, University of New Mexico School of Law, is publishing Teaching Legal Frameworks in Supplementing Socrates (Durham, NC: Carolina Academic Press, forthcoming). Here is the abstract.

This book chapter describes the process of developing legal frameworks. Legal frameworks are a critical element in basic legal analysis. They set out the questions courts ask when addressing a particular issue. Law students need to learn the applicable framework before proceeding with any type of rigorous legal analysis. This chapter also discusses an approach to teaching law students the skill of constructing legal frameworks, providing three concrete examples in the areas of Civil Procedure and Constitutional Law.
