SCOTUSblog on camera: Edward Blum (Part three)

Reading the political and legal landscapes; what it means when John Lewis and Newt Gingrich are on the same side on voting rights; reading Supreme Court cases for their signals; an expanding litigation portfolio; and the importance of the NAACP’s advocacy model in building Supreme Court cases.

In this five-part interview, Edward Blum – Visiting Fellow at the American Enterprise Institute and Founder and President of the Project on Fair Representation – discusses his background, running for Congress, and moving from public finance to political advocacy to Supreme Court litigation; the meeting of race, ethnicity and religion; the desire to “make big law” and how to read Supreme Court signals; and success building cases from the ground up – from Bush v. VeraNAMUDNO v. Holder, and Shelby County v. Holder to Fisher v. University of Texas at Austin and beyond – with “people of good will.” (Fabrizio di Piazza)
