Writing in Law Practice: Advanced Appellate Advocacy expands on what students have learned in Written and Oral Advocacy by focusing exclusively on appellate brief writing and oral argument. Students will be given a joint record extract containing the pertinent parts of the trial record that each student will use to prepare a written brief and present an oral argument before a panel of judges and/or appellate practitioners. Class work will consist of lectures on effective written and oral advocacy, discussions in which students will review and critique briefs written and filed by lawyers in past and pending appeals, and watching webcasts of oral arguments before Maryland's highest court, the Maryland Court of Appeals, which students will analyze.
