Mark E. Wojcik at John Marshall Law School in Chicago has posted (for a while — as it also appears in the ABA’s Vol. 35, No. 3, November 2006, pp. 26-29 ) an interesting piece on the Student Lawyer Social Science Research Network (SSRN) reformulating the traditional IRAC (Issue-Rule-Application-Conclusion) formula of legal writing: “Add an E to Your IRAC.”
The abstract reads:
This article is intended for law students and legal writing professors. The article shows how writers can improve your writing by explaining a rule of law. You can explain the rule by defining a term or phrase from it, by showing examples of how the rule works (or doesn’t work), or by explaining the public policy behind the rule.
