Need to know about laws? Start with critical legal thinking.

Critical legal thinking consists of investigating, analyzing, evaluating, and interpreting information to solve simple or complex legal issues or cases. Critical legal thinking improves a person’s problem solving skills and helps him or her make clear, logical, rational, and well-reasoned conclusions and judgments.
Critical legal thinking requires intellectually disciplined thinking. This requires a person to recognize and identify problems, engage in logical inquiry and reasoning, evaluate information and appraise evidence, consider alternative perspectives, question  1415assumptions, identify unjustified inferences and irrelevant information, evaluate opposing positions and arguments, and assess one’s own thinking and conclusions. (Henry CheeseMan, Contemporary Business Law)
