Drafting Issue Statements

Fischer_judithThe (New) Legal Writer Blog has posted a summary of work by Professor Judith Fischer, who analyzed 50 appellate briefs from six states.  Although Professor Fischer does not conclude that one format is better than another, she comes up with some helpful tips on writing effective issue statements.  Click here to read more.  That link has a further link to her article on SSRN if you'd like to read even more.

Hat tip to Raymond Ward at the (new) legal writer.
