The Clerks to Justices George Sutherland and Pierce Butler
The Clerks to Justices George Sutherland and Pierce Butler is one essay among many contained in the book that discuss the changes in the Supreme Court, especially in regards to the role of law clerks in its work. In the past, the justices made their decisions on the basis of the arguments advanced by the parties, their study of the facts of the case, their own research and deliberation and their internal discussions. The changes that have led to greater involvement and compensation for Supreme Court law clerks have transformed the Court. This volume contains the stories of those who were able to serve in the single best job available to a law school graduate.
