My courses are meant to help attorneys understand the strategies necessary to effectively persuade a judge...It's critical for attorneys to understand the 'why' behind these cases as well as the 'how.'
San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) October 19, 2011
A successful court appeal is not an easy process. It takes more than just good research and presentation skills. With over 45 years in the legal field as a litigator, professor, consultant, author, and expert witness, Myron Moskovitz has gained an impressive and lengthy resume on the matter. As an appellate attorney in California, Myron Moskovitz has achieved a success rate of 80% in his published cases, far above the average success rate of 20-25% in appeals. In upcoming MCLE courses in appeals and landlord-tenant law, Myron Moskovitz will share his knowledge with new and veteran attorneys alike.
Despite Myron Moskovitz's distinguished career in academia and inside of the courtroom, his MCLE students should not expect dry lectures and rote memorization. The California appellate attorney commented, "My courses are meant to help attorneys understand the strategies necessary to effectively persuade a judge. This perspective is often forgotten in the drive to analyze case studies and review bullet points. It's critical for attorneys to understand the 'why' behind these cases as well as the 'how.'"
The completion of 25 hours of California State Bar approved MCLE (Minimum Continuing Legal Education) courses is required of all state attorneys. These requirements must be fulfilled every three years unless expected under Rule of Court 9.31 and Business & Professionals Code Section 6070. Myron Moskovitz's seminars have received approval from the State Bar of California.
Retired Justice William D. Stein commented, "A gifted teacher, Professor Moskovitz has the background and experience as well as the proven ability to write winning briefs." Myron Moskovitz's teaching experience has indeed proven to be an asset for his students. Matthew Shafae, a practicing California attorney, remarked, "Mr. Moskovitz’s writing seminar is not only informative and practical, but also a breath of fresh air from the typical, sterile continuing education programs."
Currently, Myron Moskovitz is teaching the following California MCLE courses in appeals and landlord-tenant law:
Winning Appeals and Writs – In this seminar, Myron Moskovitz moves beyond typical explorations of rules and processes, instead choosing to explore the analytical perspective that is fundamental in any successful appellate attorney. MCLE students in this seminar will learn how to strategically create persuasive briefs and writs that work. Several retired appellate judges will also provide their candid experience with different approaches used in writs during an interactive panel discussion. (Approved for 3 CLE credits)
Writing to Win – Attorneys of all experience levels will find value in this in-depth examination of the principles used in effective writing. The focus will be on strategy and real-world applications rather than a study on grammar, syntax, and rhetoric. Myron Moskovitz draws from his decades-long experience and presents colorful anecdotes in his informal approach to this critical skill. (Approved for 3 CLE credits)
Landlord-Tenant Law – Myron Moskovitz is the author of several publications regarding landlord-tenant law. In this seminar, he draws on his previous advocacy for low-income tenants and experience as a witness in landlord-tenant disputes to engage MCLE students. New cases, changing statutes, wrongful eviction lawsuits, tort liability and other issues will be explored. (Approved for 3 CLE credits)
Myron Moskovitz's "How to Win Appeals and Writs" and "Landlord-Tenant Law" have previously been taught in events sponsored by The American Bar Association, American Association of Law Schools, California Judges Association, San Francisco Bar Association, and various other California law associations.
These seminars will be held at several venues throughout the California Bay Area, including Golden Gate University and the Alameda County Bar Association. Upcoming MCLE courses will be held on October 26th and November 2nd with more dates to be announced. Registration for Myron Moskovitz's MCLE courses can be made through http://www.myronmoskovitz.com.
