Supreme Court Justices' Views on Writing

One way to develop better legal writing skills is to listen to the experts: judges and experienced lawyers. Bryan Garner (the author of many usage books and editor of Black's Law Dictionary) makes that possible with these video interviews.

Now Garner has published (in the Scribes Journal of Legal Writing) transcripts of his interviews with Supreme Court justices.  They're available here (on the Legal Times website). For highlights, see The Garner Transcripts: That v. Which, and Other Supreme Court Writing Tips, The BLT: Blog of Legal Times, May 18, 2011.
