Justice Scalia

Posted by Library Blog on 04/14/2008 at 12:00 AM

For those who listened to Justice Antonin Scalia’s April 7 talk at which he expressed his judicial philosophy, you might want to read his book A Matter of Interpretation: Federal Courts and the Law: an Essay (KF4552. S28 1997).  In addition to his 1997 book, Justice Scalia has a new book scheduled for release the end of this month and he will be appearing on a segment of “60 Minutes” http://www.cbsnews.com/stories/2008/04/08/ap/supremecourt/main4002104.shtml?source=search_story to promote it.

The title of Justice Scalia’s forthcoming book is Making Your Case: The Art of Persuading Judges and it is co-authored by legal writing expert Bryan A. Garner.  Read more about this collaboration at http://www.abajournal.com/news/justice_scalia_teams_with_writing_expert_for_book.  Here is a link http://www.lawprose.org/supreme_court.php to the recordings of the interviews of eight of the nine Justices conducted by Bryan Garner in preparation for this book.
