By Antonin Scalia and Bryan A. Garner

In their professional lives courtroom lawyers must do these two things well: speak persuasively and write persuasively. This book systematically presents every important idea about judicial persuasion in a fresh, entertaining way. It covers 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 you can induce the judge to focus closely on your arguments. Finally, they show what it takes to succeed in oral argument. Hardcover.
