Skills Course - SKL-09202119A: Effective Brief Writing

Time: 9 am to 10:30 am

Contact: Hector Linares · halinare@loyno.edu

Location: Law School Building Room 111

(Friday & Saturday, September 20 & 21, 2019) (9:00 am - 10:30 am) 

This course is presented by The Advocacy Center. Effective brief writing is essential to a successful litigation practice. Litigators cannot always rely on persuading the court through oral advocacy because today judges rarely permit oral argument.. Even when the parties are afforded the opportunity, legal arguments can be won before a lawyer utters his or her first words if the legal brief persuades the court on the critical issues. Students who attend this course will learn vital strategies and techniques for preparing an effective, persuasive brief from the trial to the appellate levels. This course will focus on analytical and persuasive writing skills that show students how to frame the issues to get the judge's attention, state the case succinctly at the outset, write effectively but efficiently, utilize authority most effectively, and develop a writing style that helps your brief stand out from the others.
