Edited and authored by Mayer Brown lawyers, Bloomberg BNA’s Tenth Edition, Supreme Court Practice provides a comprehensive analysis of the Supreme Court. The treatise offers up-to-date guidance on every aspect of practice before the Court under its newly revised 2013 Rules—from the most fundamental to the most obscure. It is a definitive resource for prosecuting or defending a case before the Court.

The Tenth Edition includes:

  • In-depth discussions of the jurisdictional and prudential principles that govern practice before the Supreme Court at every stage
  • Advice from some of the country’s most experienced Supreme Court practitioners on time-tested techniques for making effective written and oral presentations
  • A complete body of Supreme Court precedent, covering all the relevant decisions in the modern era
  • A wealth of historical precedent bearing on every issue of jurisdiction and procedure in each category of case on the Court’s docket
  • Updated guidelines and checklists for docketing and processing petitions for certiorari and appeals—and for pursuing a case after review has been granted
  • Expert analysis of the current 48 Rules of the Supreme Court, as amended and effective on July 1, 2013
  • A table of cases, an extensive index and a table of rules and laws—to make preparation easier and more thorough
