This Tuesday, the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals will hear two cases at the College of Law. One interesting twist is that Justice O’Connor will sit by designation along with Judge Kozinski and Judge Ikuta. A fairly recent conversation with Justice O’Connor is here discussing her attempt to enter the legal profession. O’Connor, for all the faults of her legal opinions (that she says are being “dismantled” by the current Court), she is a very charming woman and a fine storyteller. It will be a treat to hear her ask her characteristically pointed questions on Tuesday.
