Book News Annotation:

This textbook instructs students in every specialty on the skills of interviewing, counseling, negotiation, and persuasive fact analysis in the practice of law. Krieger and Neumann (both law, Hofstra U.) stress themes of professionalism, working with and for the client, problem-solving, and communication and multicultural skills. Ethical issues are discussed in connection with all of the skills. In this edition, new topics such as decision theory, using creativity in generating options, drafting deals, the financial analysis of proposed agreements, and transactional bargaining are covered. More on narrative theory and legal storytelling is included, and a CD-ROM with a case file and planning exercises is provided. The volume teaches 18 of 26 effectiveness factors delineated by Marjorie Schultz and Sheldon Zedick, who are working on developing a law school admissions test that is more accurate than the LSAT.
