Structure of Legal Argument and Proof

2010, Evidence, Jurisprudence, Legal Education admin

Cases, Materials and Analyses, Second Edition
By: J.S. Covington Jr.

This work introduces the reader to theories of proof used in trials and provides methods for analyzing legal rules and abstractions that are essential to understanding legal studies. It begins with a discussion of common defective reasoning – fallacies (faulty references) – as they sometimes appear in legal reasoning. An able advocate will know how to defeat analytically the false dilemma, post hoc, bootstrapping, the faulty inference by syllogism, and many others. Covington explains that legal reasoning is not as complex as the novice might believe it to be. With just two major forms of reasoning and four kinds of argument, the structures of argument and proof are limited.

Logic Applied to the Preparation, Trial and Appeal of Cases, with Illustrative Briefs and Forms
By: Jess Franklin Brumbaugh

This work is an admirable introduction to the case system and to the practice of law in all its phases relating to court matters and litigation. According to the preface, the author’s observation quickly led him to believe that a more thorough understanding of the principles of logic and argumentation in relation to the practice of law was needed by the practitioner and student than could be gained in school. This work is a valuable addition to any criminal law collection.
