Written by acclaimed appellate lawyer and professor Daniel Selm Principles of Appellate Advocacy concentrates exclusively on a few rules and principles that are essential to writing clear appellate briefs and oral arguments. Designed for students preparing their first appellate arguments, as well as those who struggle with the writing process, this concise, student-friendly text helps students identify core principles at issue, frame their arguments from an appellate judge's perspective, and write clear, compelling briefs and oral arguments.

Features: Written by a highly experienced appellate lawyer who has briefed more than 35 appellate cases involving environmental and land use law, and argued over 20 of those in the appellate courts, including three in the California Supreme Court.
