With <em>Point Made</em>, legal writing expert, Ross Guberman, throws a life preserver to attorneys, who are under more pressure than ever to produce compelling prose. What is the strongest opening for a motion or brief? How to draft winning headings? How to tell a persuasive story when the record is dry and dense? The answers are "more science than art," says Guberman, who has analyzed stellar arguments by distinguished attorneys to develop step-by-step instructions for achieving the results you want.<br /><br />The author takes an empirical approach, drawing heavily on the writings of the nation's 50 most influential lawyers, including Barack Obama, John Roberts, Elena Kagan, Ted Olson, and David Boies. Their strategies, demystified and broken down into specific, learnable techniques, become a detailed writing guide full of practical models. In <em>FCC v. Fox</em>, for example, Kathleen Sullivan conjures the potentially dangerous, unintended consequences of finding for the other side (the "Why Should I Care?" technique). Arguing against allowing the FCC to continue fining broadcasters that let the "F-word" slip out, she highlights the chilling effect these fines have on America's radio and TV stations, "discouraging live programming altogether, with attendant loss to valuable and vibrant programming that has long been part of American culture."<br /><br />Each chapter of <em>Point Made</em> focuses on a typically tough challenge, providing a strategic roadmap and practical tips along with annotated examples of how prominent attorneys have resolved that challenge in varied trial and appellate briefs. Short examples and explanations with engaging titles--"Brass Tacks," "Talk to Yourself," "Russian Doll"--deliver weighty materials with a light tone, making the guidelines easy to remember and apply.<br /><br />In addition to all-new examples from the original 50 advocates, this Second Edition introduces eight new superstar lawyers from Solicitor General Don Verrilli, Deanne Maynard, Larry Robbins, and Lisa Blatt to Joshua Rosencranz, Texas Senator Ted Cruz, Judy Clarke, and Sri Srinvasan, now a D.C. Circuit Judge. Ross Guberman also provides provocative new examples from the Affordable Care Act wars, the same-sex marriage fight, and many other recent high-profile cases. Considerably more commentary on the examples is included, along with dozens of style and grammar tips interspersed throughout. Also, for those who seek to improve their advocacy skills and for those who simply need a step-by-step guide to making a good brief better, the book concludes with an all-new set of 50 writing challenges corresponding to the 50 techniques.

From a master teacher, a results-oriented approach to powerful legal writing that communicates, that persuades--and that wins.<br /><br />Of all the professions, the law has the most deserved reputation for opaque, jargon-clogged writing. Legal education, which focuses on judicial opinions, not instruments of persuasion, is partly to blame. Yet forceful writing is one of the most potent weapons of legal advocacy. In <b>Writing to Win</b>, Steve Stark, a former teacher of writing at Harvard Law, who has taught thousands of aspiring and practicing lawyers, has written the only book on the market that applies the universal principles of vigorous prose to the job of making a case--and winning it.<br /><br /><b>Writing to Win</b> focuses on the writing of lawyers, not judges, and includes dozens of examples of effective (and ineffective) real-life writing--as well as models drawn from advertising, journalism, and fiction. It deals with the problems lawyers face in writing, from organization to strengthening and editing prose; teaches ways of improving arguments; addresses litigation and technical writing in all its forms; and covers the writing attorneys must perform in their practice, from memos and letters to briefs and contracts. Each chapter opens with a succinct set of rules for easy reference.<br /><br />No other legal writing book on the market is as practical, as focused on results, as well written as <b>Writing to Win</b>.<br /><br /><br /><i>From the Trade Paperback edition.</i>

Brian Cuban was living a lie. With a famous last name and a successful career as a lawyer, Brian was able to hide his clinical depression and alcohol and cocaine addictions—for a while. <br /><br />Today, as an inspirational speaker in long-term recovery, Brian looks back on his journey with honesty, compassion, and even humor as he reflects both on what he has learned about himself and his career choice and how the legal profession enables addiction. His demons, which date to his childhood, controlled him through failed marriages and stays in a psychiatric facility, until they brought him to the brink of suicide. That was his wake-up call. This is his story.<br /><br />Brian also takes an in-depth look at why there is such a high percentage of problematic alcohol use and other mental health issues in the legal profession. What types of therapies work? Are 12-step programs the only answer? Brian also includes interviews with experts on the subject as well as others in the profession who are now in recovery. The Addicted Lawyer is both a serious study of addiction and a compelling story of redemption. <br />

<div><br /><div>Admirably clear, concise, down-to-earth, and powerful—all too often, legal writing embodies none of these qualities. Its reputation for obscurity and needless legalese is widespread. Since 2001 Bryan A. Garner’s <i>Legal Writing in Plain English</i> has helped address this problem by providing lawyers, judges, paralegals, law students, and legal scholars with sound advice and practical tools for improving their written work. Now the leading guide to clear writing in the field, this indispensable volume encourages legal writers to challenge conventions and offers valuable insights into the writing process that will appeal to other professionals: how to organize ideas, create and refine prose, and improve editing skills.</div><br /><div><br /><br />Accessible and witty, <i>Legal Writing in Plain English</i> draws on real-life writing samples that Garner has gathered through decades of teaching experience. Trenchant advice covers all types of legal materials, from analytical and persuasive writing to legal drafting, and the book’s principles are reinforced by sets of basic, intermediate, and advanced exercises in each section.</div><br /><div><br /><br /> In this new edition, Garner preserves the successful structure of the original while adjusting the content to make it even more classroom-friendly. He includes case examples from the past decade and addresses the widespread use of legal documents in electronic formats. His book remains the standard guide for producing the jargon-free language that clients demand and courts reward.</div><br /><br /></div>

<p>En marzo de 2016, Cristina de Borbón se convirtió en el primer miembro de la Casa Real que declaraba ante un tribunal como encausada. Lo hacía por una trama de desvío de fondos públicos, el caso Nóos. A su lado, en el banquillo de los acusados, estaba su esposo, Iñaki Urdangarin. Fue el instante más mediático de una larga investigación iniciada por el fiscal Pedro Horrach que ha marcado un antes y un después en la historia de España. También en la del propio fiscal: durante un juicio que fue televisado minuto a minuto, Horrach recibió duras críticas, sobre todo por considerar que había que dejar al margen de todo a la infanta.</p><br /><p>Aun siendo su caso más conocido, el de Nóos tan solo es uno de los muchos investigados por el fiscal, que ha destapado sonados escándalos de corrupción política en Baleares. Fueron diez años de trabajo intenso, en los que, junto a sus compañeros de la Fiscalía Anticorrupción, los agentes de la Policía Nacional, la Guardia Civil y la Agencia Tributaria, Horrach acorraló y consiguió condenas de cárcel para destacados líderes políticos.</p><br /><p><b>Superando presiones de todo tipo, cartas amenazantes y campañas mediáticas en su contra, Horrach se ha convertido en los últimos tiempos en uno de los fiscales más famosos y polémicos del país. Guste o no, su actuación no ha dejado indiferente a nadie. Y este libro deja claro el porqué.</b></p>

Esta obra busca chamar a atenção dos agentes públicos, julgadores, defensores públicos, membros do Ministério Público e sociedade em geral, sobre a necessidade do reconhecimento dos direitos de um imenso contingente de servidores públicos que se encontram marginalizados ao revés da possibilidade da evolução em carreira, em razão das inadequadas e más interpretações da legislação existente. Interpretações que, quanto à hermenêutica, que negam e/ou desconhecem os princípios estabelecidos no art. 37 da Constituição Federal de 1988, em especial, o da eficiência. Princípio este que a rigor deve ser interpretado ao bem do Estado e por consequência, da sociedade. Estado que somente poderá ser ativo e eficiente no atendimento das demandas da sociedade quando tiver a capacidade de promover as mudanças comportamentais necessárias dos seus agentes públicos estáveis que rigorosamente deverão ser motivados, e, para tanto, seus direitos deverão ser amplos e irrestritos conforme disposições que já estão contidas no conjunto dos dispositivos constitucionais e das ciências administrativas. Afinal de contas, o Estado faz Administração Pública e, portanto, jamais deverá ser negado a sua vinculação às ciências administrativas.
