On this Legal Speak episode, Supreme Court correspondent Tony Mauro and attorney Kannon Shanmugam break down the big developments at the Supreme Court during its recent term. Shanmugam, a partner at Paul, Weiss, Rifkind, Wharton & Garrison and one of the country’s most distinguished Supreme Court advocates, describes the cases he’s watching and what it’s like to argue before the court’s newest member, Justice Brett Kavanaugh. Shanmugam also talks about his decision earlier this year to leave the law firm Williams & Connolly for a new perch at Paul Weiss.
