By Jules Epstein, Professor of Law and Director of Advocacy Programs at Temple Beasley School of Law [PDF]

This brief Article has multiple intentions and responsibilities: to introduce this year’s (and the inaugural) Edward Ohlbaum Annual Paper in Advocacy Scholarship (“Ohlbaum paper”); to recap Eddie’s contribution to trial advocacy knowledge and instruction; and to contextualize this contribution in a history of advocacy instruction, advocacy writing, and changes in the structure and focus of legal academia.
