Description The content of the textbook consists of ten chapters, which are divided into three basic parts. The first part is devoted to the principles of publishing ethics and the correct handling of sources. The authors of these chapters are trying to show what are the ethical principles of creating a professional text and describes how students must prove that their work with sources and another materials is not only correct but also creative. Recommendations and practical advice on how to properly quote, refer to the sources, paraphrase or compile, are always understood in the context of creative text manipulation. The core of the textbook are chapters dealing with the methodology of choice of the topic, the formulation of hypothesis or basic research questions or the content and formal principles of creating the structure and curriculum of some scholarly text. This part is concluded with the chapters devoted to the methodology of scientific work and the interpretation of basic requirements for the structuring of the scientific text. These are traditional issues that cannot be ignored in any academic writing textbook. In this textbook, the interpretation of general requirements and rules is connected with the interpretation of their application in the case of creation of such a specific technical text as a legal text. Its specificity lies in the argumentative nature, where the explanation of the problem must always be accompanied by rational justification. These questions are dealt in the last chapters of this textbook. These chapters deal not only with the nature of legal arguments but also with the cases of possible argumentation fallacies or illusions. The explanation of the most frequently used legal arguments and argumentation fallacies is always accompanied by a number of illustrative examples. The conclusion of the textbook is a chapter, which consists of the analysis of legal cases. The vast majority of scientific works in the field of law cannot be solved without the analysis of legal cases.
