Congratulations To The 2021 Bristow Fellows
Plus the law schools and lower-court judges producing the most Bristows.
Welcome to Original Jurisdiction, the latest legal publication by me, David Lat. You can learn more about Original Jurisdiction by reading its About page, you can reach me by email at firstname.lastname@example.org, and you can register to receive updates on this signup page.
Here at Original Jurisdiction, I try to give you content that you can’t find anywhere else. Your inbox is full enough as it is; if I want you to subscribe, I know that I need to give you something different.
For example, take Supreme Court law clerk hiring. I don’t believe any other outlet covers SCOTUS clerk hiring in the granular, hire-by-hire way that I do. (Speaking of which, I’m working on another SCOTUS clerk hiring update; if you know of a hire that’s not mentioned in either my last hiring roundup or the @SCOTUSambitions Twitter feed, please email me at email@example.com, subject line “SCOTUS clerk hiring,” with the hire’s name, law school, and prior clerkship information.)
Another topic I cover that I don’t believe any other outlet covers: Bristow Fellow hiring. On that subject, congratulations to the five impressive young lawyers who have been awarded Bristow Fellowships, the prestigious one-year fellowships in the Office of the Solicitor General that allow their holders to practice before the Supreme Court just a year or two out of law school, for October Term 2021 (2021-2022):
