Opinion Writing Summary

Opinion Writing: 2007-2008 by Inns of Court School of Law

Opinion Writing provides students with the necessary grounding in the skill of opinion writing. It covers all the important elements of technique and pays particular attention to the skill of advising on practical matters such as evidence and procedure. Opinion Writing takes a systematic approach to teaching, first dealing with the analysis of the issues in the case, followed by the decision on what advice should be given and the structure of the opinion, and finally with writing the opinion to a professional standard. It also includes a chapter specifically designed to guide academic students who are meeting professional and practical demands for the first time. The fundamental qualities of good writing - clarity, accuracy and conciseness - are clearly identified and explained. The manual develops these qualities in the student so that their skill in using words reaches the high level required of barristers. A number of opinions written by practising barristers are also provided as examples.
