I was interviewed recently for the “SCOTUSblog on Camera” series. The series features in-depth interviews of members of the Supreme Court community about a range of topics. For those who may be interested in watching, the entire 71-minute interview has been posted here:
For those who might want to watch only in smaller doses, here are the five parts with their subtopics (as drafted by SCOTUSblog):
- Part one — A great accident. From mechanical engineering to the law; not being fired by the Department of Justice; and the importance of technical knowledge to law and technology.
- Part two — Clerk’s-eye view. Life as a law clerk for Supreme Court Justice Anthony M. Kennedy and Judge Leonard I. Garth of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit.
- Part three — Argument & influence. The importance and quality of Supreme Court oral argument; the influence on the Court of academe and legal blogging; and how advocacy and teaching affect each other.
- Part four — A professionalized supreme Court. The value of predictability in law; how the Court functions amid political dysfunction; and the Court, the confirmation process, and popular opinion.
- Part five — The generalists. “The Roberts Court”; “the Fourth Amendment Court”; and understanding constitutional values, issues and change.
