Timothy B. Dyk: The Education of a Federal Judge” is set for official release Tuesday. The U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit judge’s 234-page memoir covers a wide range of subjects: Harvard Law School education, clerkship for Chief Justice Earl Warren, practice at Wilmer Cutler & Pickering and Jones Day Reavis & Pogue (including representing the Los Angeles Times in Watergate-related litigation), a judicial confirmation that got caught up in partisan warfare, and lessons learned from his 22 years on the bench.
