Tips for improving a brief

Cantero_Raul_c_silo_web Students writing briefs this spring will find some timely tips in a recent bar journal article titled “Three Simple Ways to Improve Your Briefs.”  Raoul G. Cantero, an appellate lawyer with White & Case and a previous Florida Supreme Court Justice, urges brief writers to shorten their briefs, include an introduction, and use subsections.  I particularly like this line:  “Yes, your advocacy will improve if you write less.”
