In this book, Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia and Bryan A. Garner cover the essentials of sound legal reasoning, including how to develop the syllogism that underlies any argument. From there the authors explain the art of brief-writing, especially what to include and what to omit, so that the judge can focus closely on your arguments. Finally, they show what it takes to succeed in oral argument.
