Washington and Lee Law professor Todd Peppers‘ new book, Of Courtiers and Princes: Stories of Lower Court Clerks and Their Judges, will be the focus of a public webinar hosted by University of Virginia Press on Tuesday, March 30 at 2:00pm EDT.
The special online launch event will feature discussion by Peppers, as well as book contributors Polly Craighill, Lynn Blais, Robert Kaczorowski, Ronald Collins, and former W&L Law dean Barry Sullivan. The webinar is open to the public and will take place via Zoom. Register at https://tinyurl.com/p2bsh7wu.
While Peppers’ previous books have focused on Supreme Court law clerks, this collection of essays focuses solely on state court and lower federal court judges. It includes essays by clerks and colleagues on multiple judicial pioneers, including the first women to serve as state supreme court justices and to be appointed to the federal district court bench.
