Brief Writing Masterclass- Learn to write killer briefs.

Sheraton Hotel Ikeja Lagos, 25-26 March 2015

Brief Writing Masterclass is boldly interdisciplinary in its approach to persuasive writing. Communications theory, linguistics, logic, psychology, and rhetoric are just a few of the disciplines that combine to make this course peerless.

Issue formulation is the backbone of successful brief writing.

Justice Antonin Scalia of the US Supreme Court agrees that issue formulation is key to writing persuasive briefs. Following is an excerpt from Scalia’s interview with Bryan Garner, the famed legal-writing coach:

Garner: Herbert Wechsler is reputed to have said that he would spend half his time writing a brief just on crafting the issues. Does that make sense to you?
Scalia: That makes total sense. That makes total sense.
Garner: Why?
Scalia: That’s what the case is about, especially at the Supreme Court level. We don’t care who wins or loses. We care about what the legal issue is that is going to decide not just this case but hundreds of other cases. So the crafting of that issue, “Look, this is the point of the controversy. This is the core of it.” Man, that’s everything. The rest is background music.

Attend Brief Writing Masterclass to learn how to draft winning issues. You will learn lots more about preparing briefs, submissions and written addresses. See the flyer and the course outline below.
