The Supreme Court Sourcebook
The Supreme Court Sourcebook provides carefully selected, edited, and analyzed materials from academic literature and judicial opinions. Teachable examples range from certiorari petitions, cert pool memos, to other litigation papers and internal court documents. The flexible organization suits a variety of undergraduate and graduate courses. An online component keeps the book current and interesting, with ready-to-use materials in pending cases for advocacy and opinion-writing simulations. The combined package gives professors a turnkey solution for teaching a theoretical course (examination of the Supreme Court as an institution), a hands-on course (simulations of oral argument and opinion writing in pending cases), or any custom combination in between.
All of the authors have significant experience working for the Supreme Court: Seamon served with now Chief Justice John Roberts in the Office of the U.S. Solicitor General, representing the U.S. in cases before the Court; Siegel clerked for Justice John Paul Stevens; Thai clerked for Justice John Paul Stevens and Justice Byron R. White; and Watts clerked for Justice John Paul Stevens.
