The author, a practising barrister for over thirty years, believes a highly focused approach to your written advocacy - correspondence, written negotiation, Part 36 offers and skeleton arguments, written opening notes for trial, closing submissions and costs submissions - will put you in the best possible position to do just that. The importance of oral advocacy in deciding cases is not in dispute, but increasingly judges form pre-trial opinions of the likely outcome from written material, notably the skeleton or opening note. The application, trial or appeal then becomes a process to measure the judge s pre-formed view. The effective written closing submission will become part of the judgment. This book not only offers a practical and comprehensive guide to effective written advocacy, but provides worked examples drawn from real cases contributed from leading advocates such as Sue Carr QC, David Etherington QC, Lord Faulks QC, Andrew Hachhauser QC, Richard Lissack QC, Lord Pannick QC, and Lord Sumption.

The beauty of Goodman s new edition lies with the working examples from leading current advocates so we know what it is that the judges want. Effective Written Advocacy is an advocate s bible both invaluable and compelling.should be compulsory reading for all law students. Phillip Goodman, Richmond Green.
