Abstract

This essay argues that Supreme Court confirmation hearings, although regrettable in many ways, offer a rare opportunity to study the stories about the nation's highest court, about the people we deem fit to sit there, and about justice more generally.

Keywords: confirmation hearing, Supreme Court, storytelling, stage

JEL Classification: K10
