Hi Sarah. Thanks for sharing your excellent article on "Effective Brief Writing Despite High Volume Practice." It's alarming to think that 93% of lawyers and judges characterized the briefs they read as "marred by basic writing problems." I particularly appreciated, however, the insightful "tips" scattered throughout the article, which, if followed, will no doubt help brief writers avoid becoming "another statistic."

Thank you. And good catch; I removed the duplicative link. Although the list is now down to 70, I don't think we will run out of great reading material on appellate advocacy any time soon.

Federal judges in Pennsylvania and Texas have taught CLE's using my article on Effective Brief Writing Despite High Volume Practice, most recently last week. It is available via this SSRN link:

What a great resource. Thank you. Just a note, though -- the PDF attached to item # 62 (Tager) appears to be wrong and is duplicative of item # 55 (Shapiro).
