Effective Brief Writing

Effective Brief Writing

"From the soup of preserving issues at trial to the nuts of how to get Supreme Court review, it's all here." -Chief Judge Alex Kozinski, Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals, on Federal Appellate Practice

Tuesday, February 10, 2009

To coincide with BNA Books' publication of Mayer Brown's Federal Appellate Practice, our Supreme Court & Appellate practice is pleased to offer a complimentary teleconference series focusing on topics of interest to counsel dealing with appeals in the federal courts. Each 30-minute session, led by various authors of the book, will offer an inside look at how to successfully navigate the federal appeals process.

The first event in our series focused on Effective Brief Writing and was led by the authors of this chapter, partners Evan Tager and Miriam Nemetz. In a recent interview, Justice Kennedy remarked that "[a good brief] must be lucid, cogent, succinct, interesting, informative, convincing." Evan and Miriam presented practical tips and strategies for writing good and effective briefs, including organization, credibility and how to "tell your story."
