Justice Scalia's photo is on the front cover of the ABA Journal, and he's busy being interviewed on NPR. Why? Because he co-wrote a book, along with Bryan Garner, called Making Your Case: The Art of Persuading Judges. The ABA featured excerpts in its lead article. Any legal writing professor who reads those excerpts will yawn. If you get your hands on a copy of the book and skim the advice that's offered on legal writing and oral advocacy, you will yawn again. Most of the book's content is in almost every 1L legal writing textbook printed in the U.S.
