Over the weekend I joined several former and current law clerks to celebrate 25 years of distinguished judicial service by Edith H. Jones, currently the Chief Judge of the Fifth Circuit. In glancing over the roster of attendees I counted a handful of former clerks who, like me, are law professors.
So this got me wondering. Which current judge/justice has the most clerks now teaching at ABA-accredited law schools? Can we create a "top ten" list of feeder judges/justices into the legal academy?
