The Fallacy Files

Logic is one of the attorney's stocks in trade. It follows, then, that an awareness of logical fallacies, fallacious arguments, and other logical lapses would be of value to those who are studying the law. The Fallacy Files collects common logical fallacies and lists them alphabetically, with links to definitions and discussions of the fallacy in question. If you never understood the difference between an argumentum ad hominem and an argumentum ad populum, then this is the site to visit.
