More than half of the 182 oral arguments before the Supreme Court last term were made by familiar faces, an analysis by The National Law Journal shows. Ninety-eight, or 54 percent, of the arguments made to the court were by lawyers who argued more than once last term. That is an increase over the 2010-2011 term, in which 45 percent of the arguments were made by advocates with multiple appearances during the term.
