Judges can deny summary judgment with a decision on the margin, but to grant it they have to issue a written decision. So, to win on summary judgment you have to convince the judge that it's a good use of his or her very limited time and resources to write the decision. This focused legal course will help you improve your chances of success: from the timing and content of the brief to the concise and persuasive oral argument. Find out how to make certain your written material demonstrates the law, the facts support summary judgment, and no misstatements of law or fact have snuck in. Make the judges want to rule in your favor

  • Determine when to seek summary judgment.
  • Review what information to include in your motion to lay out the case without overwhelming it with extraneous detail.
  • Make sure your oral arguments leave the judges with a general impression that they want to grant summary judgment.
