On the latest episode of Lawyer 2 Lawyer, we consider President Trump’s nomination of 10th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals Judge Neil Gorsuch to the Supreme Court. Helping us consider the nomination are two experts:
- Carrie Severino, chief counsel and policy director of the Judicial Crisis Network. Severino has testified before Congress on assorted constitutional issues and briefed senators on judicial nominations. Earlier in her career, she was a law clerk to Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas and to Judge David B. Sentelle of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit.
- Michele L. Jawando, vice president for legal progress at American Progress. Previously, Jawando served as general counsel and senior advisor to Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY), where she was responsible for a wide-ranging portfolio of policy issues pertaining to the federal judiciary and nominations. Prior to working for Sen. Gillibrand, Jawando served as the national campaign manager for election protection and legislative counsel at People For the American Way Foundation.
