To take law seriously we not only have to look apart from the way in which judges write their rulings (a field already well explored in our country), but also from how we - as members of a community and practitioners of law - read them. That is what Making the Case is about: offering a descriptive interpretation that allows to understand the place court rulings occupy in our political and juridical imagination. This review is divided in three titles. In the first, we present a brief and superficial explanation of the proposals of the cultural legal studies, then we mention the structure of the book and some points and key arguments. In the second title, we enounce some critical comments to the arguments on Making the Case. Finally, in the third title of this text, we propose a perspective about the input of this book on the theory of law in Latin America.
