For “Bridging the Gap” participants

This morning I gave a one-hour presentation on appellate practice at the Louisiana Bar Association’s Bridging the Gap seminar for new lawyers. For them and anyone else who may be interested, here are some links to downloadable PDFs:

During the presentation, I talked about over-reliance on forms in legal writing, including brief writing. Here’s a link to an article on that topic that I wrote a few years ago: Immortal Forms: the Vampires of Legal Writing.

LSBA’s “Bridging the Gap” seminar Oct. 16–17

If you’re new to the practice of law (or know someone who is), then you may be interested in the Louisiana State Bar Association’s “Bridging the Gap” seminar, to be held on October 16–17 in New Orleans. This is a great seminar for anyone who just passed the Louisiana bar exam. I’m on the program for October 17 to talk about appellate practice.
