Opinion Writing Summary

Opinion Writing: 2009-2010 by The City Law School

Opinion Writing 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 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.
