Supreme Court Fellows Arrive at NAAG for Spring Term

The NAAG Supreme Court Fellows program gives deputy and assistant attorneys general an opportunity for direct and rigorous exposure to the practices of the U.S. Supreme Court. This hands-on experience allows selected attorneys from the Office of the Attorney General to come to Washington, D.C. for several months during the Court’s argument session. During this time, they watch oral arguments, participate in moot courts, prepare an amicus brief in a Supreme Court case, and draft the biweekly Supreme Court Report. The following two fellows are working with NAAG Supreme Court counsel from March through June:
