Book review: New edition for a classic treatise, SCOTUSblog
In all my decades of practice, Supreme Court Practice has remained the indispensable reference.
Chair, Appellate and Supreme Court Litigation Practice Group, WilmerHale and former Solicitor General
Supreme Court Practice is simply indispensable to me and to my colleagues. I have personal copies in my office, in a separate work room that I use, and at home. I consult it constantly. I cannot recall an issue having arisen involving the Court’s procedures, practices or customs when I have not found valuable guidance and wisdom in it. I do not see how anyone could practice before the Supreme Court without having this valuable resource readily available.
Co-Chair, Appellate and Constitutional Law Practice Group, Gibson Dunn and former Solicitor General
Supreme Court Practice is a soup-to-nuts guidebook to everything lawyers need to know about petitioning, briefing and arguing before the Supreme Court, with insights into the best ways of getting favorable attention from the Court at every stage.
