Building Your Best Argument
Through the sheer volume of litigation facing the courts, complete, concise and well-reasoned arguments are demanded of today's lawyers. Both trial and appellate benches are more dependent than ever on well-prepared written arguments of counsel, particularly because many decisions occur without any oral argument. In cases where oral argument is permitted, there are additional challenges including rigid time constraints that make every statement count.
