Building Your Best Argument

By Cecil C. Kuhne III

Through the sheer volume of litigation facing the courts, complete, concise, and well-reasoned arguments are demanded of today's lawyers. Both trial and appellate benches are more dependent than ever on well-prepared written arguments of counsel, particularly because many decisions occur without any oral argument. In cases where oral argument is permitted, there are additional challenges including rigid time constraints that make every statement count.

Building Your Best Argument helps lawyers strategize to fully inform judges about the background of the case and to carefully construct an argument that both candidly and completely applies the facts to law. It provides guidance on how to highlight the relevant facts and to competently and clearly explain how the applicable body of law governs the case.

Learn how to:

  • Be simple and direct
  • Begin with a strong introduction
  • Summarize your points
  • Develop background information
  • Discuss relevant case law
  • Conclude with strong statements
