The Western District of Michigan FBA recently announced that, in addition to attending the FBA's annual meeting and conducting a Supreme Court swearing-in ceremony, Supreme Court Clerk General William K. Suter will also be participating in an informal interview/Q & A program in the Jury Assembly Room of the federal courthouse at 10:30 a.m. on Wednesday, October 17. The program will be moderated by United States Magistrate Judge Joseph G. Scoville and Michigan Solicitor General John Bursch.
General Suter has served as the clerk of the United States Supreme Court for over twenty years. During that time, he has heard over 1,500 oral arguments and is widely considered one of the leading experts on oral advocacy before the Supreme Court. I am sure the program will offer some very interesting insights about the inner workings of the Supreme Court. General Suter's reputation as an entertaining and engaging speaker suggests that this program is well worth attending.© 2014 Varnum LLP
