A short history of written advocacy

In The Art of Written Persuasion: The Rise of Written Persuasion, Troy Simpson traces the rise of written advocacy in England and Wales, Australia, and America. This article is the first of a series. In future installments, Simpson will examine why, despite the rise of written advocacy, lawyers’ written-advocacy skills remain under-developed and will suggest some possible solutions.
