Briefly on a Brief

I’ve got a brief that is due very soon. Like last week. It’s presently looking like this:

Words Words Words Words DEFENDANT’S COUNSEL IS A LYING SACK OF SHIT Words Words Words Words Words Words Words Words Words Words Words Words Words Words Words DEFENDANT’S ARGUMENTS SMELL LIKE POO Words Words Words Words Words Words Words Words Words Words I AM THE GREATEST ARGUER EVER Words Words Words DOOTY Words Words Words

If my mental dialogue was what I was putting on paper:

Words Words Words Words GOING TO LOSE FOR SURE WHY WASTE MY TIME Words Words Words Words Words Words Words Words Words Words Words Words Words Words Words Words Words Words I CANNOT MAKE A WINNING ARGUMENT BASED ON THE LAW OR FACTS Words Words Words Words Words Words Words Words Words Words Words I HATE THIS CLIENT Words Words Words Words Words WHY DID I GET STUCK WITH THIS PILE OF SHIT CASE Words Words Words Words DOOTY Words Words Words

They say legal writing is an art, I say it’s more like torture.

  1. That’s the majority of my briefs until the 11th hour before the response has to be filed. If no written response is required, I think that way all the way through oral arguments!
