Opinion Writing 2009/2010 offers trainee barristers a thorough grounding in the essential skill of writing opinions and providing practical advice on matters such as evidence and procedure. Adopting a systematic approach to opinion writing, the manual first provides guidance on analyzing the issues of a case, through to deciding what advice should be given, how the opinion should be structured, before finally moving onto writing the opinion to a high professional standard.

The fundamental qualities of effective writing - clarity, accuracy, and conciseness - are clearly identified and explained ensuring that the manual supports the reader in developing the unrivalled level of proficiency in writing required of all practising barristers.

Opinion Writing 2009/2010 is essential reading for all trainee barristers, and is also a useful source of reference for junior practitioners wishing to refresh or refine their opinion writing skills.
