    Revised for the contemporary litigator, Effective Appellate Advocacy was first published in 1950 and subsequent editions published in 1961 and 1967. The Litigation Bookshelf edition takes the 1950 edition as a starting point and incorporates material from the 1961 and 1967 editions, but eliminates material now obsolete. Frederick Bernays Wiener’s distinctive voice—a combination of wit, strong opinions, and a superb writing style—remain. The advice contained within these pages is as practical and useful, it style as clear and distinctive, and its opinions as forceful and pungent as the day the book first appeared.

    One of the great appellate lawyers, Wiener tells you how to most effectively prepare a brief and argue a case on appeal, and how to challenge and command the attention of the court. With useful advice and forceful opinions, this book will also help you:

    • Formulate effective statements of fact
    • Present convincing evidence
    • Write the most effective briefs
    • Perform sound analysis of legal problems
    • Make your openings and closings more effective
    • Use questions from the bench to your advantage
