Seeing Both Sides of an Argument

timer Asked: Nov 28th, 2016

Question description


are all about to make the switch from writing objective analysis to

writing persuasively. In doing so, you must consider and be able to

analyze not just your position on the issue (or your client’s), but also

that of your opponent. You must be able to construct arguments

supporting different positions, using the law and the facts to

effectively and persuasively support those positions.

Often, students believe that they can only argue effectively from one

perspective, which they personally support or believe in. Some of you

aspire to attend law school and become attorneys. Others of you plan to

complete this degree and function as paralegals in law firms. Either

way, you must develop your ability to see multiple sides of any issue

and to make good, solidly supported arguments in support of those


This week, I want you all to discuss this issue. Is it difficult for

you to see both sides of an issue? Is it hard for you to make arguments

in support of positions with which you personally do not agree? How

will you overcome this if it is a problem? If it is not a problem for

you, how do you approach writing such arguments?
