Webinar: How To Write and Use Amicus Briefs Strategically

On March 4, 2024, Larry Ebner presented a webinar for the Dartmouth Lawyers Association on How To Write and Use Amicus Briefs Strategically. Interviewed by DLA Treasurer Hilary B. Miller, Larry, a 1969 Dartmouth College graduate, covered key questions from the viewpoints of both amicus brief authors and parties seeking amicus support. For example—

  • Who files amicus briefs and why?
  • What are the differences in approach between petition-stage and merits-stage amicus briefs?
  • What is the worst mistake an amicus brief author can make?
  • What are some of the key procedural pitfalls to avoid?
  • How far can a litigating party go in soliciting amicus support?
