Telling Your Story: Effective Advocacy in Legal Writing

1h 15m

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.


Learning Objectives:

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
