Hosted by Ross Guberman, a critically-acclaimed author and president of Legal Writing Pro, LLC, the lecture will focus on the writing techniques used in the briefs filed in the decision.
The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, or “Obamacare,” is a United States federal statute signed into law by President Barack Obama on March 23, 2010, aimed primarily at decreasing the number of uninsured Americans and reducing the overall costs of health care. Twenty-six states, several individuals and the National Federation of Independent Business brought suit to challenge the constitutionality of the statute, namely its individual mandate and Medicaid expansion provisions. Briefs were filed and arguments were made in the United States Supreme Court, which issued its opinion on June 28.
A professional lecturer at George Washington University Law School, Guberman is the author of the Amazon bestseller, Point Made: How to Write Like the Nation’s Top Advocates, praised by critics as a a must for the library of veteran litigators. Guberman’s next book will address how to write like the world’s greatest judges.
