This book focuses on the U.S. Supreme Court and aims to function as a true educational “sourcebook” to serve the growing interest, in law schools and other educational settings, in the inner workings of the U.S. Supreme Court, as well as a useful book for those who practice before or closely follow the Court. The book contains carefully edited and analyzed materials on the U.S. Supreme Court, including academic literature, historical materials, internal court documents, briefs, and judicial opinions that should be considered an excellent resource for rising interest in the inner workings of the Court. The book, which is approximately 700 pages long, includes eight chapters covering the following topics: (1) a supreme court; (2) the justices; (3) jurisdiction; (4) certiorari; (5) written advocacy; (6) oral argument; (7) deciding cases; and (8) contemporary issues facing the Court. No other book on the U.S. Supreme Court contains such a comprehensive selection of wide-ranging sources that expose readers to a rich mix of doctrinal, practice-oriented and theoretical sources.
