For 1Ls: Law Library Resources on Formatting Your Appellate Brief

The Harnish Law Library understands that as you write your appellate briefs, you may have questions about formatting in Microsoft Word. To assist you, we have published a LawGuide called Formatting Your LRW Appellate Brief: Instructions and Tips for 1Ls. This LawGuide includes both step-by-step video tutorials and PDF instructions for various formatting tasks, such as creating a table of authorities or adding different types of page numbers to your document. Our instructions are tailored to both Mac and PC users.

If you have additional formatting questions after using our LawGuide, stop by a Law Library help session beginning for one-on-one assistance (first come, first served). All sessions will be held in the Law Library learning lab.
