“Criminal Justice,” 34 Pepperdine L. Rev. 521 (2007)
As Professor Kmiec has said-and Dean Starr before him-the big news in the last year is not this case or that one but the change of personnel. Let's start with Justice Alito since you've heard a little bit more about Chief Justice Roberts. Justice Alito is a former prosecutor. He brings to the Court not only more prosecutorial experience than any of the other members of this Court, or the Court in recent history, but perhaps more prosecutorial experience than any previous Justice in U.S. Supreme Court history.
