A Step-By-Step Guide
to Writing a Factum
APRIL 30 1:00 P.M. - 4:00 P.M.
Greg Temelini, Wright Temelini LLP
Writing a factum in law school is one thing, writing one for the Court
is an entirely different matter! Real clients are involved, with real
consequences. You learn to consider your approach and reason for
writing the factum, and then how to write a clear overview statement,
set out the facts, and frame the issues.
• Hear from experienced counsel and judges on best practices
• Review sample precedents to find flaws and consider improved
• Try your hand at writing factum components followed by small-
and large-group debriefs
• Determine and discuss ethical issues which may arise
