What I Miss from the Practice of Law

by José Simián

From “Extreme Makeover” by Dahlia Lithwick (The New Yorker, March 12, 2012):

[T]he Supreme Court is both supremely open to and supremely closed off from the world around it. That’s why we come to the Court, play by its rules, and tell the Justices stories they like to hear about people who remind them of themselves. The Justices don’t get out much.

We may well wonder, then, where they get their information about the world outside their chambers, and how they learn (…) how much they don’t know about that world.
