What Judges Really Think

Bryan Garner is one of the best speakers around when it comes to understanding how to write briefs and how to make an impressive oral argument. Not just the mechanics, mind you, but the practical side of the process too. Now, he's gone one better.

If you ever get the chance, go to one of his seminars. There's no one better on the subjects he discusses. But, have you ever wondered what judges really think about appellate briefs and arguments they see and hear?

Well, there's only one US Supreme Court and what they think is probably not a lot different from what other appellate judges and state supreme court judges think. Now you can find out. Better yet, you can watch them voice their opinions.

Garner conducted a series of video interviews with 8 of the 9 US Supreme Court Justices and has posted the eight videos on the web site of LawProse where you can watch the Justices tell their thoughts on what is good and what is bad about the briefs and arguments they see and hear.

The pet peeves you hear the Justices talk about are surprising and run the gamut of all things meaningful and otherwise. Take the time to watch and learn. It's well worth it. And you can't beat the price.
