Persuasive Brief Writing - Structure and Organization

Structure and Organization

Unclear and unpersuasive legal writing often comes from undeveloped analysis and undisciplined organization. This webinar explores best practices for structuring and organizing briefs, including how to most effectively frame arguments, use authority and find a winning theme. It also takes a fresh look at an old law school war horse — : I(ssue) R(ule) (A)nalysis C(onclusion) – one of the few rules in life from which there’s virtually never cause to deviate.
