From the outset of the Trump administration’s search for a U.S. Supreme Court nominee, Judge Brett Kavanaugh was a frontrunner based on his conservative credentials and long service on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit. Kavanaugh is among the would-be nominees who’ve reportedly spoken with President Donald Trump, who expects to announce on July 9 his pick to succeed the retiring Anthony Kennedy.

Kavanaugh’s spoken regularly to law students and at various law-themed events over the years, telling audiences about his experience in the George W. Bush White House and about his time on the D.C. Circuit. He’s shared his approach to judging and opened up about his law school days, including the house he lived in as a Yale Law School student that was “so nasty that all the college frats had turned it down as unsanitary.”
