How to write a good appellant brief二

分类:涉外文书   更新:2016/6/18   来源:本站原创

    Learned Hand Throws a Brief

    Some compliment: After huffing that the brief was too long and saying he would not read it, Hand threw it over the bench. It landed on counsel table with a thud. The youthful lawyer (-and future Justice) sitting there was left with a queasy stomach and a sinking feeling. If you want to avoid being pelted with your own handiwork, consult and follow the rules.

    A lawyer writing a brief in the United States Supreme Court need consult only one set of formal rules: the Rules of the Supreme Court of the United States, which became effective in its current form on January 1, 1990.

(The materials must, of course, be served on opposing counsel.)
