SCOTUSblog on camera: Eric Schnapper (Part six) : SCOTUSblog.
This is the last in a series of interviews with Eric Schnapper, who for twenty five years represented the NAACP LDEF in the Supreme Court. Conducted by Fabrizio di Piazza, they were posted on Scotusblog in November 2014. He was also the source of advice to many lawyers. In this interview he emphasizes the value of experience before the court. But everyone who will argue there has to have a first time. I have a good story to tell about him that will wait for another day. – gwc
