Jonathan Laurans has researched and prepared several Petitions for Certiorari, submitted to the United States Supreme Court. Few certiorari petitions are granted each year, which is the prerequisite to being given an opportunity for oral argument in front of the nine Supreme Court Justices. Usually less than eighty of the eight thousand or so “certiorari petitions” received by the Supreme Court are granted, annually. Restructuring your previous legal arguments unique to your case, to make them relevant to a national audience, and thus appealing to the nine Supreme Court Justices, is a challenging and nuanced task. Ask Mr. Laurans to share with you a few of the certiorari petitions he has written, and allow him to explain how a case is selected for consideration by our nation’s highest court, so you can better understand the process.
