Stories About Stories:
The Multiple Layers Of Truth
In Appellate Briefing
LACBA Appellate Courts Section Program January 6:
In appellate briefing, a compelling story can be as crucial as a cogent argument.
And you are always telling at least two stories - one about what happened in the outside world that brought the parties into court, and another about what happened in the trial court that landed them in the Court of Appeal.
Join us to hear Justice Arthur Gilbert and writer Hoyt Hilsman discuss the craft of building a compelling narrative, weaving multiple narratives together, and forming your factual narration into the foundation for a winning legal argument.
The Hon. Arthur Gilbert, Presiding Justice, California Court of Appeal, Division Six, is a frequent contributor to the Los Angeles Daily Journal and author of "Under Submission," a collection of the best of his thought-provoking Daily Journal columns.
Hoyt Hilsman, author of the novels Nineteen Angels and The Chaklala Codes, is an award-winning screenwriter, frequent contributor to The Huffington Post, former congressional candidate, non-practicing attorney, and consultant for law firms.
