Characterization and Legal Discourse.
Little, Laura E.
Journal of Legal Education, v46 n3 p372-406 Sep 1996
A discourse technique, re-framing a dispute in terms favorable to the speaker, is discussed as it has implications for lawyering and legal education. Literature on this approach to argument is reviewed, addressing such issues as constructive and destructive forms and avoidance of confrontation; and several discourse models are outlined. The importance of audience in selection of model is analyzed. (MSE)
