Synopses & Reviews
West is honored to offer a luxuriously packaged, numbered, premium bonded leather, limited edition of Making Your Case: The Art of Persuading Judges. Limited to 2010 numbered copies, this Collector's Edition is bound in high quality bonded leather with accompanying hardbound slipcase. Making Your Case is a guide for novice and experienced litigators alike. It covers the essentials of sound legal reasoning, including how to develop the syllogism that underlies any argument. The authors explain the art of brief-writing, what to include and what to omit, so that you can induce the judge to focus closly on your arguments. Finally, they show what it takes to succeed in oral argument. The opinions of Judge Justice Scalia are legendary for their sharp insights, biting wit, and memorable phrasing. The writings of Bryan A. Garner, editor in chief of Blacks Law Dictionary are respected inside and outside legal circles for their guidance on the art of writing and advocacy.
