As a law professor, I know a whole bunch of former Supreme Court law clerks. They are, in the main, the nicest white men one could ever hope to meet.

And why shouldn’t they be? They have it “made in the shade,” as one of the justices’ messengers might say. Supreme Court clerks are the Masters of the Universe, Young Lawyers Division. They command the ears of the most powerful judges in the country. Law firms will pay them $50,000 starting bonuses. They’re first-round picks for the choicest academic and government positions. No wonder other people want to crash the party.
