    Bibliographies re Appellate Oral Advocacy and Brief Writing

    Touro College’s Jacob D. Fuchsberg Law Center provides this list of research guides available as PDF downloads.  Included are these self-explanatory titles: and “May it Please the Court . . . “: A Select Bibliography of Appellate Oral Advocacy Materials  Best Brief: A Select Bibliography of Brief Writing Materials.  Both appear to be limited to materials available at the center’s library, but there’s enough reading on each of them to keep anyone but Evelyn Wood busy for a long, long time.
