Telling Your Story: Effective Advocacy in Legal Writing
Created on February 27, 2016
What makes legal writing good legal writing? Mr. Alimonti, a published author of children's books and a twenty-five year litigator, would posit that the best legal writing has a decidedly "non-legal" tone. This lecture explores essentials of legal writing in various contexts, with an emphasis on how telling a good story is imperative to constructing compelling arguments. Blue booking will most emphatically not be addressed.
I. Understand what is expected in legal analysis to client, partner, and court
II. Grasp a holistic approach to brief writing – keeping your theme and story in the forefront
III. Use old tools like "logos" and "ethos" to make and oppose arguments
