From the all-important brief-concise, comprehensive and effectively written-to the delivery of powerful oral arguments, counsel's success is measured by the ability to persuade and win. This text clearly explains how to be an effective and persuasive legal writer and advocate. This work is designed to bridge the gap between law school and the practice of law and it is ideal for students and novice practitioners who want to brush up on their writing skills. The following topics are covered: Legal Writing and Preliminary Considerations; Opinion Letters and Claim or Demand Letters; Trial and Post-Trial Briefs; Memoranda of Law; Appellate Brief Writing; Respondent and Reply Briefs; Oral Argument; Legal Citation. Useful appendices contain illustrative examples of legal documents attorneys will likely be required to prepare, and are formatted to be easily adapted for legal writing exercises in course use.
