Justin WalkerBrandeis School of Law Professor Justin Walker has a unique perspective on the recent changes to the makeup of the U.S. Supreme Court.

A former law clerk for retiring Justice Anthony Kennedy, Walker also clerked for Judge Brett Kavanaugh, nominated by President Donald Trump to fill Kennedy's seat.

At Judge Kavanaugh's request, Walker was in attendance at the White House for the nomination announcement on July 9, 2018.

"It was a once-in-a-lifetime moment to be in the East Room, to see a justice nominated, and for that person to be someone I admire so much as a jurist and as a mentor and as a person," Walker says.

"I loved seeing him up there with his wife and two little girls, whom he adores. It was also special to see his dad and trailblazing mom sitting in the front row, looking beyond proud. I felt excited for all of them, honored to be there and hopeful about the independence and fair-mindedness he’s going to bring to the Supreme Court."

Walker has been featured in several local and national media outlets about Judge Kavanaugh's nomination and his experiences working for both men:
