As we seek to understand the decision-making of the Supreme Court, it is helpful to gain a sense of what day-to-day life is like in the massive Supreme Court building. This chapter focuses on some specific aspects that give elaboration to a description of the activities of the justices and those around them. Topics covered include the extent of interaction between justices, the role of law clerks, the “freshmen effect”, and dissenting opinions.

Keywords:   Supreme Court, justices, law clerks
