Advanced Persuasive Legal Writing (2)

In Advanced Persuasive Legal Writing, students will evaluate appellate briefs and opinions, and write and revise legal arguments. This course will move beyond what is taught in the 1L p Written and Oral Advocacy persuasive legal writing course. Students will explore theories of persuasion, rhetoric, storytelling, and metaphor to better understand what makes an argument persuasive. During the semester students will critique Supreme Court and other appellate court briefs and opinions, and engage in persuasive legal writing.
