Judge and renowned appellate advocates speak at the LWI Conference

At the LWI Conference, an engaging panel on appellate advocacy included Judge Patricia Millett of the United States Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia and appellate advocates Gregory Garre of Latham and Watkins and Nicole Saharsky of the Solicitor General’s office. Judge Millett said the best way for students to learn brief writing is to read good briefs and opinions, mentioning the Solicitor General's briefs and Justice Scalia'a dissents. Another suggestion from the panel was for brief writers to avoid long block quotations and lengthy repetitions of precedent cases’ facts. Pictured below (l.-r.) are Gregory Garre, Patricia Millett, Nicole Saharsky, and panel moderator Kristen Tiscione.
