The Murray and DeSanctis titles are designed for the current generation of law students whose familiarity and comfort with on-line and computer-based learning create a demand for teaching resources that take advantage of that familiarity and comfort level. Advanced Legal Writing and Advocacy: Trials, Appeals, and Moot Court is designed for second semester and upper-division advanced writing courses involving advocacy and oral argument at the trial and appellate levels and in moot court competitions. This book employs the TREAT paradigm and doctrine of explanatory synthesis to maximize the persuasive potential of appellate-level legal writing for actual practice and for moot court competitions. It is well suited for use as a primary text in an upper division appellate advocacy or advanced writing course or moot court program, or as a primary or supplemental text for first year legal writing courses that focus on appellate advocacy as the pedagogical model to teach legal writing skills. Paired with the book is an electronic, computer-based version of the text that adds links to on-line databases and internet-based resources and supplements the text with pop-up definitions from Black's Law Dictionary. The electronic version of the text is searchable and highly portable, with internal and external navigation links, making them more valuable for use in class and out. The interactive text employs a layout that departs from the traditional, all-text casebook format through use of callout text boxes, diagrams, and color/border segregated feature sections for hypotheticals, references to scholarly debates, or other useful information for law students.

Appellate Advocacy: Principles and Practice is designed primarily for use in an upper class appellate practice course. It will provide students with a basic understanding of the most fundamental principles of appellate litigation, using examples from the federal system as well as several illustrative states. And, by helping law students to understand the basic principles behind appellate litigation, which are not covered in any other law school course, Appellate Advocacy: Principles and Practice can also enhance their study of law in general. Like the prior edition of Appellate Advocacy: Principles and Practice published in 2004, this new edition also includes exercises revolving around the most important principles of appellate practice. And, in addition to the updated materials throughout the book, the Fifth Edition also: • Addresses the important matter of seeking stays pending appeal, the possibility of en banc review, and alternative dispute resolution in the appellate context (Chapter 2) • Expands the discussion of the preservation doctrine to include more materials on civil litigation and augments discussion of scope of review to include judicial notice (Chapter 3) • Provides more treatment of review of administrative agency decisions (Chapter 4) • Offers more detailed discussion of the evolving constitutional harmless error doctrine (Chapter 5) • Includes new exercises to emphasize some of the ethical issues that arise in appellate practice (Chapter 6) • Adds new sections on amicus briefs and on persuasive citations (Chapter 7) • Eliminates the chapter on federal habeas corpus and other avenues of collateral attack on judgments, which will be the subject of a future text.
