Litigation partner Kannon Shanmugam was featured in an Above the Law article discussing his recent speech, “Arguing Before the Supreme Court,” at the Columbia Federalist Society. Kannon discussed how Justice Antonin Scalia transformed the approach to oral argument at the Supreme Court, the importance of moot courts, and what we can expect from the Court’s newest member, Justice Brett Kavanaugh, among other topics. “The briefing is about why you should win, and the argument is about why the justices should want to rule for your side,” Kannon explained in his speech.
