III. Jurisdictions

We have written the Toolkit for lawyers in Australia, America, and England and Wales and comparable jurisdictions that rely on written advocacy.

The Toolkit has an Australian bias, but we have also tried to cater for lawyers in other jurisdictions where written advocacy plays an important role in a case's outcome, especially America and England. For example, in Step 2, we have based most of the tables on English examples. In Step 5, we have provided examples of US sources. Fundamentally, we have taken an approach that depends more on research and writing concepts and methods than on a country's substantive laws. Even so, Win More Cases will not apply to all jurisdictions that rely on written advocacy. For some places, you will have to think carefully about crucial legal, cultural, and linguistic differences.
