Not only is Neal Katyal young for a professor at a top-tier law school, he is also involved in a few of the significant cases of the decade. Katyal is the lead attorney for Salim Hamdan, Osama bin Laden’s alleged driver who is being held at Guant�namo Bay, Cuba, and Lieutenant Commander Charles Swift in Hamdan v. Rumsfeld, currently pending before the U.S. Circuit Court for the District of Columbia. He has put in nearly 2,000 pro bono hours working on the case, and thousands of dollars of his own money. In 2000, Katyal served as co-counsel for Vice President Al Gore in the U.S. Supreme Court election case Bush v. Palm Beach Canvassing Board, which challenged the Florida voting system. Katyal also filed an amicus brief in the Supreme Court case involving the pledge of allegiance and an amicus brief for a group of private law school deans in the high court’s landmark affirmative action case, Grutter v. Bollinger. Katyal served as national security advisor to the deputy attorney general at the U.S. Department of Justice, and was commissioned by President Bill Clinton in 1999 to co-author a report on ways that the legal profession can enhance pro bono activities. He has been a visiting professor at both Yale and Harvard law schools. Before joining Georgetown in 1997 as an associate professor, Katyal clerked for U.S. Supreme Court Justice Stephen Breyer, and Judge Guido Calabresi of the 2d U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals.
