Good Brief Writing is What Helps People Get Their Cases Heard

nlpa blog 3 3-09-15The Supreme Court takes very few cases each year even though a huge number of people apply for an appeal on their case here. This is because all of these cases have been heard by another appellate court first and the Supreme Court doesn’t feel like trying them would result in any difference. Only with compelling new evidence or a controversial case will the Supreme Court be interested.

When it comes to getting a case all the way to the Supreme Court, great brief writing can factor into the court’s decision on whether or not to accept the case. A well written brief that clearly explains what is compelling or controversial about the decision made on this case can help to attract further interest. This is always the first step to having a case enter the Supreme Court.
