Short Circuit 291 | Stanford’s Supreme Court Clinic

We visit some friends of the Institute for Justice at the Supreme Court Litigation Clinic at Stanford Law School. The clinic allows law students to work, full time, alongside experienced Supreme Court litigators on a range of interesting cases. IJ’s Anya Bidwell recently traveled to Stanford and sat down with two clinic professors, Jeffrey Fisher and Easha Anand. They discuss the clinic and its model, cases pending at the Court this term, and arguments the clinic had at the Court last term. And, interspliced with the conversation, you’ll hear a few cuts from the actual arguments. Enjoy a fascinating look at how cases get to the Court, how they’re argued, and how the dynamics of the current Court are shaping those arguments.
