These tips come from a post at the online newsletter for the ABA Section on Litigation here. They are divided into advice about writing, how to handle yourself in the courtroom and general practice pointers including some you might not think of such as resisting the urge to respond in writing to email requests from colleagues asking for your opionion about "Judge Smith" or "attorney Jones." Since you don't know where your message may ultimately wind-up, provide your feedback either in person or over the phone in order to avoid what happened to these attorneys.
There's also a link to a long list of podcasts offered by the Section on Litigation called "Sound Advice" that cover many topics ranging from "Rainmaking for Young Lawyers" to "The Last 24 Hours Before Oral Argument." Most of the podcasts are only about 10 minutes. It's a great resource so check out the entire library here.
