Synopsis: Available to the public for the first time, The Solicitor General's Style Guide consists of three manuals used by the United States Office of the Solicitor General in preparing briefs to be filed in the Supreme Court of the United States:

  • Office of the Solicitor General Citation Manual,
  • Office of the Solicitor General Supplement to the Supreme Court Rules, and
  • Office of the Solicitor General Writing Preferences.
Supreme Court Justice Scalia and legal writing guru Bryan Garner have extolled the Solicitor General's briefs as models for other lawyers to follow. Now the citation and style secrets behind those briefs are available to lawyers and fans of the Solicitor General and the Supreme Court. In The Solicitor General's Style Guide you will learn gems like:
  • What term did Solicitor General Charles Fried consider a "barbarism," ordering its "total extirpation" from the Solicitor General's briefs?
  • What punctuation does the Office consider "ugly"?
  • How does the Solicitor General decide whether to form the possessive of a word ending in "s" by adding just an apostrophe or an apostrophe "s"?
  • When does the Solicitor General use ibid. instead of id.?
  • And much more!
The Solicitor General's Style Guide cannot help you write like the Solicitor General, but now you can cite like the Solicitor General!

Review: "As U2 might say, Jack Metzler's version of the Solicitor General's Style Guide is even better than the real thing. It is, in essence, a Bluebook for Supreme Court practitioners, touching all things style and citation as they relate to briefs filed at the Court - tremendously useful for the lawyers who practice there."

- Tom Goldstein, Supreme Court expert and publisher of SCOTUSblog.

"No wonder the writing standards of the Solicitor General's office are held in such high regard! The Solicitor General is the only Justice Department official required by statute to be 'learned in the law.' This style manual shows how seriously the holders of that office take that responsibility. Forget the Bluebook, the Solicitor General's common-sense rules of punctuation, citation, capitalization, and italicization are now public and all lawyers should pay heed."
- Tony Mauro, Supreme Court correspondent of The National Law Journal.
