Well, we generally are taught to write “objective briefs” - these are neutral bruefs that fairly and dispassionately lay out the case law and summarize the status of that law’s effect. A “persuasive brief” will advocate for your client’s position. Instead of neutral presentation of cases, you would select cases that are strongest for your position and focus on telling a judge why you should win. Similar skills but the tone and task are a bit different.

There are some selected answers on the state of Texas bar examiners page at https://ble.texas.gov/selected-answers -- Look especially at the July 2013 and February 2014 answers, as those were for arguments for persuasive briefs.
