A panel discussion was held on the legacy of Thurgood Marshall, the first black U.S. Supreme Court Justice. The panelists talked about how Justice Marshall’s experiences as a trial lawyer and as an appellate lawyer before the U.S. Supreme Court informed his actions on the bench and his life experiences leavened the views of the other justices. Topics included his probable opinion of the court today. The panelists told stories, many humorous, about his interactions with the justices and clerks. They responded to questions from members of the audience. 

Susan Bloch was formerly a clerk to Justice Thurgood Marshall; Wayne Drinkwater to Chief Justice Warren Burger; Luther Munford to Justice Harry Blackmun; and Michael Wallace to Justice William Rehnquist.

This panel, “Supreme Court Law Clerks on Justice Marshall,” was part of a symposium honoring the 100th birthday of Thurgood Marshall, the first black U.S. Supreme Court Justice. The symposium, held at the Telecom Center in Jackson, Mississippi, by the Mississippi College School of Law Law Review, focused on Justice Marshall’s impact on government and legal issues. close
