Product Description

With Point Made, legal writing expert Ross Guberman throws a life preserver to attorneys, who are under more pressure than ever to produce compelling prose. What is the strongest opening for a motion or brief? How to draft winning headings? How to tell a persuasive story when the record is dry and dense? The answers are "more science than art," says Guberman, who has analyzed stellar arguments by distinguished attorneys to develop step-by-step instructions for achieving the results you want.

  • Provides provocative new examples from the Affordable Care Act wars, the same-sex marriage fight, and many other recent high-profile cases
  • Offers considerably more commentary on the examples, along with dozens of style and grammar tips interspersed throughout
