This course is for anyone who wants to strengthen their legal writing and citation skills, and understand the mechanics of crafting a winning brief or motion. We’ll discuss insights gleaned from over a decade of practical experience writing memos, briefs, and pleadings, as well as from conversations with hundreds of attorneys and judges about legal writing. 
 
In addition to discussing the substantive role that citations play in the outcome of a case, we’ll cover: 

  • Free tech tools for super accurate and fast cite-checking
  • How you can instantly improve your writing by keeping the focus on the evidence
  • How to uncover strong arguments by analyzing opposing counsel’s sources
  • Why storytelling in the facts section can be the most important part of the brief
  • The intersection between writing style and tone and citations.

You’ll leave this course with new insights that will influence every pleading you write or review.
