Présentation de l'éditeur

Good writing wins court cases- The Winning Brief is proof. Now, Bryan Garner brings us a revised and updated version of his modern classic. In 100 concise, practical, easy-to-use sections, legal writing guru Bryan A. Garner goes step-by-step through the art of effective legal writing. He covers it all - from the rules for planning and organizing a brief to openers that can capture a judge's attention from the first few words. "Never write a sentence that you couldn't easily speak" Garner warns - and he shows how to do that. He gives masterly advice on building sound paragraphs, drafting crisp sentences, choosing the best words ("Strike pursuant to from your vocabulary."), quoting authority, citing sources, and designing a document that looks as impressive as it reads. Throughout, he shows how to edit for maximal impact, using vivid before-and-after examples that apply the basics of rhetoric to persuasive writing. Filled with examples of good and bad writing from actual briefs filed in courts of all types, the book also covers the new appellate rules for preparing federal briefs. Including new sections on the ever-changing rules of acceptable legal writing, Garner's new edition keeps lawyers on their toes and writing the briefs that win cases. An invaluable resource for attorneys, law clerks, judges, paralegals, and law students and their teachers. The Winning Brief has the qualities that make Garner's book so successful: authority, accessibility, and page after page of tips and techniques that work.

HASH(0x945d8e10) étoiles sur 5 A must-have for practitioners 18 novembre 2004
Par S. L. Lorton - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
I became familiar with this book in law school and it has helped me tremendously. It debunks the myths about which practices are truly expected in briefs and which provide more latitude and freedom for legal writers.

The information is presented in 100 easy-to-understand "tips." Each tip provides quotes from judges, legal scholars, and other literary figures who help to explain why a particular facet of writing is important. Garner also includes examples, oftentimes what-to-do's and what-not-to-do's.

The format of the book makes it easy and helpful to use and the information is invaluable. It's like an advanced course in legal writing.

Highly recommended!

HASH(0x945dc774) étoiles sur 5 Clear Writing is Persuasive Writing 9 janvier 2007
Par Jeffrey M. Pollock - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
The Winning Brief is essential reading for any lawyer who cares about writing clearly and persuasively. As a litigation partner and trial lawyer, I am always looking to improve my own skills and find that Bryan Garner's comments are clear and practical. I strongly recommend The Winning Brief because it goes well beyond many texts that discuss generalisms on trial and appellate briefs--Mr. Garner provides instead direct insight into how to move the trier of fact.

HASH(0x945dc7c8) étoiles sur 5 A critique specific to the Kindle Version 15 juillet 2013
Par Jason D. Killips - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
I love this book, but I am very disappointed in the Kindle edition. So be warned.

I wanted a Kindle version of this terrific book because I wanted my own copy (I have borrowed a colleague's hard copy), and with my Kindle and iPad, I would always have it handy. As a way to read the book, this is great and helpful. But as a REFERENCE tool, it is nearly useless. There is no comprehensive table of contents to help you refer to past chapters to brush up on a particular topic. And the subject index--which is included--doesn't work. For example, when I look up "Mr., Ms. Mrs.," it refers to chapter 55 (which is right). But the link takes you to page 55, which is in the middle of chapter 8 and far from where you need to be. This simply isn't useful unless you are reading it only straight through.

HASH(0x945dc828) étoiles sur 5 Helpful quick refernce 18 octobre 2007

I am currently a law student, this book provides some insightful ideas and is useful because it doesn't require an hour of reading to pick out helpful relevant tips. All the 100 tips are outlined in the front and back cover so you can skim for something specific and go to it and read it.

The author of this book is highly respected and provides many CLE classes, I recommend this book to anyone looking for ways to improve their brief writing.

HASH(0x94487960) étoiles sur 5 Write to win. 21 janvier 2011
Par Marbury V. Madison - Publié sur Amazon.com

I was formerly the Chief Administrative Law Judge of a nine-Judge panel. We heard highly complex cases and usually spent 5 to 10 days on the record when we heard a case. We started by attending Bryan Garner's drafting seminars. Subsequently, we brought him in to present his course on Judical Writing. Garner's books were the foundation of an exponential improvement in our orders. Moreover, it became easy for us to spot the briefs of "Garner graduates" as their work was always clearer, and more readable than anyone else's. Take it from someone who used to read briefs for a living, the brief that is easy to read and easy to understand is the brief that most easily persuades.
