Why is the law so complicated? Why is it so hard to prove that someone else is lying? How can you get people to believe you're telling the truth? Why does it seem that lawyers always find something to argue about? In short, what is the law thinking? The Legal Mind is your backstage pass to the logic of the law and the legal system. The Legal Mind explains how the law finds facts and establishes rules in the face of deliberate deception, the fallibility of memory, the frailty of vision, and the ambiguity of language. Learn why seeing should not necessarily lead to believing, why circumstantial evidence is sometimes the best evidence, and why even the clearest rules almost always leave room for argument and debate. Smart, engaging, and insightful, The Legal Mind will delight and inform everyone who has ever wanted to know how the law works and why the legal system is the way it is.
