Happy Friday from Avalon and Brad, and welcome to another round-up of the week’s news about the judiciary. This week, we’re zeroing in on two timely topics: law school admissions and clerk hiring. One federal judge says universities should re-examine how much weight LSAT scores have in admissions to improve diversity. And Brad takes a look at the reemergence of the debate over Congressional efforts to increase security for judges, an effort that has supporters and critics.
