The Supreme Court keeps up the pace with two opinion days a week. Your hosts discuss the three opinions this week, which involve the scope of Indian police jurisdiction, an immigration issue, and a very unique statutory interpretation case that answers the question how do you become a cyber criminal. GianCarlo interviews Joshua Prince, a junior associate at the law firm Schaerr Jaffe LLP to learn about how a young lawyer can start a career as an appellate advocate. Lastly, GianCarlo tries to stump Zack with trivia about the Justice's educations, but ends up getting bested at his own game!
