This book is designed to teach statutory interpretation skills. It uses a combination of traditional cases along with problems to accomplish that objective. Broadly organized around the process of interpretation, it focuses first on the plain meaning of the text and then addresses the question of whether and, if so, when courts will examine sources other than the text. The book addresses the various approaches and theories to interpretation and examines how those approaches have been applied to particular interpretative problems, such as implied rights, administrative interpretations, and the interpretation of "uniform statutes." Within each chapter, subjects are introduced with concise summaries of the core concepts. After the introduction, a well-edited case explores the uncertainties and boundaries of those core concepts. The notes and questions following each principal case are designed to help focus the students' thoughts and understanding of the case before they come to class. Finally, problems are included to ensure that the students use the statutory interpretation skills they have just learned. Each problem lends itself to at least two arguments (often more) and allows for further inquiry into the concepts in the chapter. The second edition has been revised and updated to include more problems and a few new cases. Additionally, the legislative and administrative chapters have been substantially revised.

While many family law attorneys outsource preparation of QDROs to other professionals, the attorney still requires guidance on how to best protect his client's interests. Author Raymond S. Dietrich provides a tightly focused analysis, the necessary information and the strategies critical to properly positioning a case. Effective strategies in negotiating settlement of interests in retirement benefits are poorly understood partly because many family law attorneys send the task out to a specialist, use a form book to draft a QDRO or accept the pension plan administrator's offer of the "standard provisions." This book provides a succinct education regarding the structure of many pension plans, alerts the practitioner to unknown contingencies, empowers the attorney with negotiating strategies and warns of potential attorney liability. QDRO Strategy and Liability complements all state-specific and national dissolution practice sets and online family law menus in the handling of retirement benefits, one of the most common and important assets in marital dissolution proceedings. This top-of-the-line coverage is a necessary addition for all family law attorneys handling significant asset cases, as well as forensic CPAs and pension plan administrators. A Table of Cases, a Table of Statutes and an Index complement the synopses at the beginning of each chapter to make analysis and authority easy to find. The eBook versions of this title feature links to Lexis Advance for further legal research options.

Mastering Legal Analysis and Communication is designed to help novices navigate the often difficult task of learning new ways of thinking and communicating. Law schools employ methodologies and pedagogical paradigms that law students find mystifying and hard to comprehend. This book aims to explain how these methodologies and paradigms function, why they are used, and what they are meant to accomplish. The topics covered range from the basic concepts of understanding what law is and what ?thinking like a lawyer? means, to making sense out of the structural paradigms of legal writing and rhetoric.Mastering Legal Analysis and Communication will serve as a useful guide for students as they undertake their studies in both their casebook and practical skills courses. In fact, the themes discussed and explanations offered will help students better see that the analytical and communication skills utilized in all their classes fall upon the same continuum of professional competence. As such, this book is a vital reference work for students as they try to make sense of their law school studies in a more comprehensive and connected way.

Finally, the author provides an extensive teachers' manual offering step-by-step guidance for how to best make use of the book's innovative materials.
