My method in writing this book was that prescribed for Canadian lawyers in writing briefs for trial judges and similar documents for appeal court judges: I researched as many sources and precedents as I could find; I cited not only the ones in my client’s favor, but also drew to the judges’ (your) attention ones contrary to the position I was trying to advance, and do my best to argue that they did not apply, or that the ones in my favor are more persuasive or relevant.
