Suggestions for writing issue statements

Schiess_wayne_lg In a new article titled Issue Statements--different kinds for different documents,Einhorn_elana  Professors Wayne Schiess and Elana Einhorn of the University of Texas note that issue statements can take a variety of forms and conclude that no single form suits all kinds of legal writing. They offer specific suggestions for different types of documents and recommend that "lawyers should not hamstring themselves by trying to shoehorn an issue statement into a form that is not right for the document and its purpose.”
