The Tools of Argument

How the Best Lawyers Think, Argue, and Win

Have you ever been in the midst of a discussion or argument regarding business, politics, legal matters, family responsibilities, or any other contentious topic and felt that your opponent did not have the “right” position, but had the better argument? Why is it that some people—often lawyers—can use reasoned arguments to debate with frustrating effectiveness? Perhaps you wished that you had a greater repertoire of skills to make your points, and win!
 
If you are a law student or pre-law student, this book will accelerate your learning with a comprehensive set of principles to guide your legal education. If you are a trained lawyer or paralegal, this book will give you a framework for analysis and argument that will enhance your effectiveness. If you are a businessperson or government official, these essential tools of argument will increase your odds of winning any dispute.
 
This book is for anyone who enjoys critical thinking, persuasive presentation of ideas, and victory in argument. After all, winning arguments is much more fun than losing them.                                                                                 

Available in Paperback and E-book 

Grounded in the legal system, this book covers principles of dispute resolution that will assist you with suppliers, customers, and employees.
