Solicitor General's Style Guide now available

And we won't be dressing like this to court, either!

Hot off the presses for your appellate library comes The Solicitor General's Style Guide. As described in this week's National Law Journal article, Now Everybody Can Write Like the Solicitor General, you'll learn the following: "caselaw" should be two words, not one; "attorney's fees" not "attorneys' fees"; never use the section symbol; don't italicize the "v." in case names. Uh, us Californians will be sticking with the good ol' YellowBook, thank you very much!
