Legal Writing Suggestions

Follow the rules.  Read the Mississippi Rules of Appellate Procedure before you file a notice of appeal. Read MRAP 28 before your start to write your brief.

Please follow the rules on formatting. The rules are specific on margins, line spacing, font size, cover color, page limits, etc. Do not try to “get around” page limits by cheating the margins “just a little bit.” Please don’t use double underline or all caps. Be careful with emphasis (such as italics, underlining, and bold).
