How does someone go from being born in Port Alberni to becoming the new dean of NYU Law School? Well, a degree here and there plus a clerkship for Justice Ginsburg plus some serious constitutional law scholarship does the trick.
Congratulations to Trevor Morrison on his new gig. While he probably has no clue who I am, I happened to overlap with him one summer, over ten years ago, when I was a summer associate and he was a junior associate getting ready to leave for his US Supreme Court clerkship. He was very nice to the summer associates (especially the Canucks) and he even organized a tour of the Supreme Court for us. That is how I got to see the highest court in the land.
