Abstract

Each term the Supreme Court decides a mere seventy-five or so cases out of the more than 8,000 petitions for certiorari seeking review. It’s no surprise then, that, for many attorneys, arguing a case before the highest court in the nation is the crowning achievement of their career. For a select few, however, it is simply business as usual.

Who are these individuals? This year's "Supreme Court Yearbook" provides a look at each member of the Supreme Court Bar who served as the counsel of record in a case during the October Term 2011, ranking them in order based on the number of cases they handled.

This year's "Supreme Court Yearbook" similarly ranks the law firms involved in the 2011 term based on the number of cases for which they supplied the counsel of record.

Keywords: U.S. Supreme Court, October Term 2011, appellate advocacy, law firms, legal practice
