A new, reader-friendly book for both law students and practitioners is Judith Fischer's Pleasing the Court, Writing Ethical and Effective Briefs (Carolina Academic Press 2005). This book combines sound advice on how to write professional level briefs that will assist the court and not annoy it. The book includes references to cases in which lawyers did not follow this sound advice. And it includes tips on how to achieve the desired results and references to further published assistance.
