Garland, a judge on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit since 1997, has maintained close relationships with his former clerks as they rose to top positions in government, academia and private practice. Their strongest concentrations are in the U.S. Department of Justice and at large corporate law firms, especially Jenner & Block. Often, lawyers moved between the disciplines.

Below, explore the network we’ve mapped from a comprehensive survey of the careers of Garland’s 71 former clerks. Hold your mouse over the dots to see connections, or pull them apart or together on the map. Yellow dots show places of employment, and blue dots denote the former clerks. Zoom in to view the labels of dots that appear without a label at first.
