About the Book

Briefs are a combination of legal reasoning and good story-telling. It is very important to be able to construct a persuasive legal argument in support of a clients case while telling the clients story. The aim of every brief is always the same: to persuade. This means that there are fundamentals that must be adhered to in order to create a good brief, and big mistakes must be avoided.

The book can utilized as an outline or a refresher for any type of brief that must be written, whether its a main brief, reply brief, or sur-reply, and whether its a lower court or appellate brief. A Brief Guide to Brief Writing will enable brief writers to understand and tell the clients story, in a persuasive and effective manner.
