Oral arguments handbook offers tips for Michigan Supreme Court Practice

Attorneys who appear before the Michigan Supreme Court have a valuable new resource: a comprehensive, online handbook about how to prepare for and argue their cases.

Entitled “Guide for Counsel in Cases to Be Argued in the Michigan Supreme Court,” the handbook was compiled by Supreme Court staff with extensive input from Michigan Solicitor General John Bursch.

Topics include preparation for oral argument, filing, brief writing tips, oral argument procedures, and more. It is especially designed for those making their first appearance before the Court. The guide includes general information plus a directory of offices and programs.

The guide is available at http://courts.mi.gov/Courts/MichiganSupremeCourt/Documents/MSC%20Guide%20for%20Cou nsel.pdf.
