Practical Guide to Appellate Advocacy - 2nd edition

Practical Guide to Appellate Advocacy (ISBN10: 0735553777; ISBN13: 9780735553774)
ISBN13: 978-0735553774

Summary: Recognized by instructors nationwide as the book that shows students how to get from a blank page to a finished product, A PRACTICAL GUIDE TO APPELLATE ADVOCACY has been revised, refined, and updated for its Second Edition.

This accessible paperback earned its success in the classroom by:

  • providing a complete introduction to the techniques and process of writing appellate briefs
  • presenting cla ...show moress-tested materials and ample illustrations that are both accessible and teachable
  • emphasizing the process approach to writing, beginning with large-scale issues like content and organization, moving to smaller-scale issues like signals to the reader, and ending on the smallest-scale concerns of format and polishing methods
  • using numerous annotated examples -- both good and bad -- of legal writing from briefs, with commentary on the point each example is illustrating
  • including in the appendices four sample briefs with annotations that identify strengths of the brief and/or why the writer chose a particular technique
  • teaching students how abstract formulas (IRAC, CREXAC, etc.) can be effective in legal writing by having them identify whether certain elements have been included in a document and giving concrete advice on how to use formulas
  • encouraging students to critique their own work and improve their final draft by using the self-graded draft
The Second Edition is strengthened by:
  • including format and function information about dispositive motion memos (such as motions to dismiss or for summary judgment), along with a sample motion memo
  • refining the discussion of the use of authority to help students better understand what a citation means
  • improving the discussion of CREXAC to facilitate easier comprehension of how to use formulas to write effectively
  • adding the concept of 'user' to complement the concept of 'reader' and explaining the needs of both groups
  • supplying more information on identifying a theme for the argument
  • including tips on citing to web pages and citing to unpublished opinions
