The Problem of the Problem Question in English for Academic Legal Purposes.
Howe, P. M.
English for Specific Purposes, v9 n3 p215-36 1990

Scripts produced by students and teachers revealed a pattern of repeated syllogisms, or an algorithm, contained within the macrostructure of situation-problem-solution. Variation depended upon the issues discussed or type of law studied. (28 references) (Author/JL)
