Description

This text covers the nature of advocacy, how to write a compelling brief, and how to present an effective oral argument. The book may be used in a variety of ways: as an introduction to appellate advocacy for first-year students, as a self-contained upper-level course for second- and third-year students, for in-house associate training programs, or as a refresher for practitioners.

The fourth edition has been updated to include:
  • Two new case files that reflect evolving law pertaining to racial justice issues
  • A new model brief and a mock oral argument template to go with it, both involving state police powers in regard to mandatory vaccinations
  • A new section on oral arguments in a virtual world
  • New sample exercises
  • Updated how-to advice
