Unlike most document-centric first-year legal writing texts, Your Client’s Story: Persuasive Legal Writing centers on the client, with a focus on ways to persuade the reader to grant the relief each client seeks. Organized to reflect the process, the text begins with meeting the client, moves to investigating the facts, and then provides guidance on analyzing and choosing the appropriate persuasive strategy. The material is rooted in concepts of brain science and cognitive psychology–in an easy-to-read, conversational style–and shows how classical rhetoric and modern persuasion theory provide the foundation for memorable legal writing. Persuasion and argument presentation cover both the trial and appellate levels. By focusing on the process of persuasion, Your Client’s Story: Persuasive Legal Writing creates strong connections between the first year objectives and the upper level skills and clinic courses. Editable versions of the sample briefs appear in the appendices, so that professors can tailor to individual needs.

The authors, are all distinguished former Presidents of The Legal Writing Institute and have published significant articles about persuasive techniques in legal writing. Robbins and Johansen co-organize the Applied Legal Storytelling conferences, and Robbins is Co-Editor-in-Chief of Legal Communications and Rhetoric: JALWD.

Very Clear & Helpful Book This was one of those rare books we were required to buy during law school that was actually worth the purchase price. It was also one of the few I didn’t resale after completing my first year legal writing course. Very clear & helpful book.

Alex Mae says:

Great book for legal writing! My teacher follows this book very closely. The book does an amazing job at explaining each part of the brief and oral argument, but more than that it goes into the reasoning of why you include each part. If your teacher assigns this book you are in for a treat!

Lindsey says:

perfect! great condition, shipped fast! no problems at all with it. I had to order brand new because there were no used ones, but its a new edition so I understand that.
