Editorial Reviews:
Synopsis
Mary Beth Beazley s highly regarded A Practical Guide to Appellate Advocacy, Third Edition, is a comprehensive student-focused guide to writing appellate briefs. Written in an understandable, direct writing style, this concise paperback s effective structure centers on a four-point approach to writing and breaks each point down into key elements that are then treated in-depth.

This accessible paperback:

  • provides a complete introduction to the techniques and process of writing appellate briefs
  • emphasizes the process approach to writing, beginning with large-scale issues such as content and organization, moving to smaller-scale issues such as signals to the reader, and ending on the smallest-scale concerns of format and polishing methods
  • includes an appendix with four sample briefs with annotations that identify strengths of the brief and/or why the writer chose a particular technique
  • shows students how to effectively use abstract formulas such as IRAC or CREXAC when they are writing
  • teaches students how to revise and improve their work by using the self-graded draft

Improvements to the updated Third Edition include:

  • Chapters have been reorganized to separate motion briefs from appellate briefs to allow professors to assign focused readings more easily
  • The section on standards of review for a motion to dismiss has been updated to reflect Supreme Court decisions in Twombly and Iqbal
  • Enhanced and refined discussions of:
    • How to write effective topic sentences arguing that a rule does or does not apply to the case
    • Using introductory material effectively to set the stage for the argument
    • How to "harvest" arguments from non-mandatory courts
    • How and where to deal with opponent's arguments

A Practical Guide to Appellate Advocacy, Third Edition, offers practical advice with specific techniques that encourages students to develop new skills and greater confidence.
