New book to be authored by Justice Scalia

The Legal Times reports that Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia is co-authoring a book with Bryan Garner (editor of Black's Law Dictionary) on the art of persuading judges, both orally and in written briefs. The tentative title of the book, which will be published by West, is Making Your Case: The Art of Persuading Judges. According to Justice Scalia “The object of the book is to make available, in a compact and (we hope) readable format, what we think to be the best advice on how to argue a case. It covers both brief-writing and oral argument. And it includes both advice from modern sources and advice from ancient sources adapted to modern American circumstances. We hope it will be helpful to the bar; if so, it will benefit the bench as well.”
