In Chambers, in Court, and Getting Along with Others

Federal Judges Revealed

William Domnarski

Oxford University Press

This chapter focuses on what judges do in court and in chambers. The oral histories not only present more judges describing their work habits and procedures, but provide the added bonus of them going beyond the published sources and describing the relationships between bench and bar in the courtroom and the relationships among the judges behind the scenes. For district judges, we can look at two topics within the subject of how judges do their jobs. One is to look at the way judges manage their work in chambers, while another is to look at how the judges manage what they do in court, which includes how they handle the lawyers practicing before them. For appellate judges, the essential issue is how they manage their work as they prepare for oral arguments.

Keywords:   federal judge, federal judiciary, courts, chambers, district judges, appellate judges, oral arguments
