David Franklin Reflects On Being RBG Clerk
For more on how Ruth Bader Ginsburg conducted herself as a Supreme Court justice, we’re joined by someone who had an up-close view. David Franklin is a law professor at DePaul College of Law in Chicago, where he teaches Constitutional Law, Administrative Law and Conflict of Laws. And the solicitor general of Illinois — basically the state’s top appellate lawyer — from 2016 to 2019. But most on point for our conversation today, he was a clerk to Justice Ginsburg in 1999 and 2000.
