Bryan Garner has shared with us one of his favorite sources to find examples of excellent legal writing. It's the website with links to the briefs of the Solicitor General of the United States. The Solicitor General supervises and conducts government litigation in the U.S. Supreme Court. Almost all of that litigation is channeled through the Office of the Solicitor General and is actively conducted by the Office. The United States is involved in approximately two-thirds of all the cases the U.S. Supreme Court decides on the merits each year. Their briefs are well written and provide good examples for your own writing.
