Storytelling is recognized as a powerful tool in legal advocacy. With outstanding visual aids, examples, and sample documents,Persuasive Legal Writing: A Storytelling Approach, Second Edition, shows students how to use the techniques of storytelling to shape a legal argument into a cogent and compelling narrative.

Authors Camille Lamar Campbell and Olympia R. Duhart have designed every chapter and page to make narrative storytelling techniques the basis for any type of persuasive legal document. Students learn to create arguments that elevate their client's dilemma, demonstrating that the facts demand a decision in their client's favor.
