Supreme Court practice : for practice in the Supreme Court of the United States

by Stephen Shapiro. Bureau of National Affairs. 10th edition. 2013.
1493 pages. Updated by new edition.

Supreme Court practice was first published in 1950 and authored by Eugene Gressman and Robert Stern. The authors of the 10th edition stay true to the original mission of providing everything there is to know about handling a case before the U.S. Supreme Court in one volume. Despite its daunting size, this is an easy to use resource. The detailed table of contents is followed by concise checklists for “processing certiorari cases, appeals and cases accepted by the Court for plenary review.” There are numerous appendices that bring together laws, court rules, clerk’s guidelines, and forms. There are even floor plans for the court building included.
