1493 pages. Updated by new edition.
Supreme Court Practice was first published in 1950 and authored by Eugene Gressman and Robert L. Stern. New authors of this 10th edition are keeping true to the original mission of providing in one volume everything there is to know about handling a case before the Supreme Court of the United States. Despite its daunting size, this is a very easy to use resource. The very detailed table of contents is followed by concise checklists for “processing certiorari cases, appeals and cases accepted by the Court for plenary review.” Following the in-depth chapters on pursuing a case before the Supreme Court, there are numerous appendixes that bring the laws and court rules, clerk’s guidelines and forms together. There are even floor plan for the building court building included.
