The purpose of this powerful new series is to help lawyers develop a practical, working knowledge of the principles of logic, argumentation, and persuasion. “Logic” is a study of the principles of sound reasoning; “Argumentation” is the process of reasoning systematically to support a proposition; “Persuasion” is the process by which a person’s attitudes are influenced by communications from other people. In Part 1 (of this four part series), we’ll focus on ten common informal logical fallacies, discussing how they are formulated; how to recognize them; how to use them; and how to refuse them in legal arguments and in contract negotiations.
