SCOTUSblog on camera: Randy E. Barnett — Part five

Arguing Gonzales v. Raich, the medical marijuana case, and the value of briefs, oral argument, and an increasingly experienced Supreme Court bar.

In this six-part interview, Randy E. Barnett of the Georgetown University Law Center discusses his background, interests, and his role in Supreme Court cases involving medical marijuana and the Affordable Care Act; originalism’s effect on the Court’s jurisprudence; and the meaning and relation of justice to politics, history, precedent, and the Court.

“I consider myself, first and foremost, a legal scholar. And, I’ve never really considered myself either a litigator or a legal advocate per se. I got drawn into litigation on the basis on my scholarship.”
