The requirement to produce skeleton arguments has been with us for 10 years, but written advocacy remains in its infancy. Court of Appeal judges admit that cases are decided before oral argument on the strength of written advocacy. This second edition develops the first edition by building on what practitioners found useful and including recent examples.

Throughout the civil justice system under the Civil Procedure Rules the skill is vital – cases are won on lost on the advocate’s skill writing, not addressing the court orally.

This book provides practical advice in drafting:-

  • model form pre-action protocol letters of claim;
  • inter partes correspondence;
  • Part 36 Offers;
  • skeleton arguments;
  • written opening notes for trial;
  • closing submissions;
  • costs submissions
Leading practitioners have offered their assistance in producing a book of real authority. Invaluable for professional students and practitioners alike. The author is a practicing barrister and teacher of advocacy, mediation and other key legal skills.Designed for all those interested in good practice in legal English, this volume is ideal for individuals looking for a ready reference and for those training trainees and pupils.
