This year marks the 50th anniversary of the first publication of Wright & Miller’s Federal Practice & Procedure, one of the most respected and enduring legal treatises. The treatise has been cited in federal court an astounding 90,000 times, according to Westlaw estimates, and has been cited by the U.S. Supreme Court every year since 1973.
Thomson Reuters presents a special podcast series throughout 2019 to mark the occasion. Professor Arthur Miller, founding author of the treatise, will sit down with leading legal scholars and thought leaders to explore the issues and challenges facing attorneys practicing before the federal judiciary.
In this first episode, we start off the series with a conversation between Prof. Miller and Jean Maess, vice president of editorial operations at Thomson Reuters, about how the duo of Professors Wright & Miller developed Federal Practice & Procedure.
