Robert Ferguson's New Book: Practice Extended

Robert Ferguson, Professor of Law, Columbia University, is publishing Practice Extended: Beyond Law and Literature (Columbia University Press, 2016). Here is a description of the book's contents from the publisher's website.
Practice Extended helps general readers navigate the intricacies of legal language and thought, strengthening their grasp on law's relationship to society and culture. The book details how judicial opinions are written, how legal thought and philosophy inform ideas, and how best to appreciate a courtroom novel. With chapters on immigration, eloquence, the Constitution, Ulysses, and mercy, Practice Extended is a far-ranging work on the importance of language in law and the interrelation of law and literature.
