Supreme Court Justices on Legal Writing
Bryan Garner of LegalProse.Org has posted the videos of extensive and revealing interviews he conducted with 8 of the 9 U.S. Supreme Court Justices in 2006-2007. The interviews focus on what the Justices consider to be good and bad legal writing. The Justices also discuss the literary influences on their own legal prose. Read the NPR story here. The interviews have been published in the Scribes Journal of Legal Writing.
