The Dallas Chapter of the Federalist Society will host an update on the Supreme Court’s cases from the past term with appellate litigator John Elwood on Wednesday, July 20, 2016 at noon at the Belo Mansion.
Mr. Elwood is a partner in the D.C. office of Vinson & Elkins, and has argued nine cases before the Supreme Court of the United States, as well as before most federal courts of appeals. His work has earned him recognition as one of Washington’s top Supreme Court lawyers (Washingtonian, 2013), as one of “a small group of lawyers” with an “outsized influence at the U.S. Supreme Court” (Reuters, 2014), and as one of the country’s most innovative lawyers (Financial Times, 2014). Chambers USA reports that “[t]he much-admired John Elwood is praised for his advocacy skills” (2013), and describes him as “phenomenal” (2014), “incredibly talented” (2012), and “a much-loved and widely respected lawyer who is quick on his feet” (2010). He is also a regular contributor to SCOTUSBlog.
Prior to joining V&E, Mr. Elwood was a law clerk to U.S. Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy and Judge Daniel Mahoney of the Second Circuit Court of Appeals; a Deputy Assistant Attorney General for the Office of Legal Counsel in the Department of Justice; and Assistant to the Solicitor General in the Department of Justice, where he was involved in many Supreme Court cases. He is a 1989 graduate of Princeton University (A.B., summa cum laude, Phi Beta Kappa), a 1990 graduate of King’s College (M.A., with distinction, first in class), and earned his J.D. in 1993 from Yale Law School where he was a Senior Editor for the Yale Law Journal.
