Does anyone know any good books or articles about how to write trial level or appellate level opinions?

I don't know any books, but I'm just curious why exactly you would even want to know about this

Just google it and I'm sure you will find something

for drafting of opinions during externships/clerkships.

I googled and found some general stuff, but I was wondering if anyone thought any particular sources were useful or helpful during their externship/clerkship tenure.

Its easy. Take the brief of the party you disagree with, and go through and refute every argument they make.
