In hardcover, by Antonin Scalia and Bryan Garner

How do effective advocates persuade courts to decide cases in favor of their clients?

Justice Scalia and Bryan Garner address the perennial question with a detailed answer adapted to the modern era. Drawing on copious literature - the recorded thoughts of great lawyers throughout history - the authors have systematically worked through their answer in 115 sections that deal with principles of persuasion, legal reasoning, brief-writing, and oral argument. The result is a compendium of advice like no other, leavened with the authors' trenchant wit and lucid prose style.

Every lawyer, from the beginner to the courtroom veteran, will benefit from reading and then regularly consulting this book, which combines the practical wisdom of an inclusive Supreme Court Justice with the learning of a renowned writer on advocacy and the effective use of the English language. Even those outside the legal profession will find this guide useful in understanding persuasion in general and the American legal system in particular.

Bryan A. Garner is the editor in chief of Black Law's dictionary and the author of many books, including The Elements of Legal Style. 

Antonin Scalia was an associate justice of the Supreme Court of the United States.
