Anyone read through Garner's legal writing stuff? Any thoughts on his methods - specifically the process below, and it's application on exams?
Madman - Creatively drop as many ideas on paper as possible within your allotted time without structure. A frienzied initial response to a stimulus or fact pattern.
Architect - Structure ideas into clear, linear (readable) narrative.
Carpenter - Forced evolution of ideas and simple application of fact to law to well-written narrative. (This is the primary process, although Garner relates each as equally important).
Judge - Basic proofreading/re-wording/clean-up.
I'm going to run through leews in July, and thought I'd ask for thoughts from the field on integrating this strategy into my writing. I appreciate this style. Thanks all.
