The Marble Palace Blog has What It’s Really Like to Argue Before SCOTUS — A new book reveals the angst, drama and adventure of arguing before the Supreme Court.
Books about the U.S. Supreme Court and its cases and justices are plentiful. But it is difficult to find books about the arduous, intense, drop-everything behind-the-scenes steps that lawyers take to argue before the court.
Now there is such a book, and every appellate lawyer or Supreme Court aficionado should read it. In the book titled “At the Altar of the Appellate Gods: Arguing Before the US Supreme Court,” author Lisa Sarnoff Gochman has pulled back the velvet curtain of the court to reveal the ups, downs and in-betweens of Supreme Court advocacy. The publication date is Oct. 1, but the book is available for preorder at Amazon and elsewhere.
