With a little help from its former dean Elena Kagan, Harvard Law School has edged out Yale Law School in the race for the most Supreme Court clerks this term. The Court on Wednesday released the official list of clerks and their law schools and prior clerkships, confirming what’s been available at Above the Law and elsewhere.
The sitting justices have four clerks each, for a total of 36, but we’re counting the three clerks for the three retired justices, who often are detailed to other justices and perform equivalent tasks. Of those 39, Harvard can boast 10 — including three hired last week by Kagan — and Yale has nine. Duke and the University of Virginia weigh in at three each.
