February 25, 2016 – Professor Stuart Banner was quoted in a UCLA Newsroom article about the work done by UCLA Law students in Banner’s Supreme Court Clinic, which involves students writing amicus briefs and petitions for writs of certiorari to convince the U.S. Supreme Court to hear certain cases.
“They do research. They write the documents we file with the court. They help decide what cases we’re going to take. Basically everything that I do, they do, too,” Banner said. “Of course, I edit their work, but they basically do all of the work that a lawyer would do to try to get a case to the Supreme Court, and then actually write a brief once the court has agreed to hear a case.”
