A successful law school candidate must be articulate and capable of clear, consecutive thinking--qualities that invariably translate into their written work. This updated manual instructs law school applicants on preparing the style of essay that is required for law school admission. Approximately 40 model essays originally submitted by applicants to leading law schools are presented in this book with a critique following each essay. General essay-writing advice is also included.
