I’m eager to escape from the New York cold. Next Thursday, I’ll be doing an event in L.A. with Judge Alex Kozinski of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit, one of the leading lights of the federal judiciary — and, of course, one of the esteemed blurbers of Supreme Ambitions.
Details about the event and how to RSVP appear below. I hope to see some of you in Los Angeles next week!

A Conversation Between Judge Alex Kozinski and David Lat About Judging, Clerking, Ethics, and Ambition
At this luncheon event, Judge Alex Kozinski of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit and David Lat, founder and managing editor of Above the Law, will have a conversation exploring the themes raised in Judge Kozinski’s essay, “Clerkship Politics,” and Mr. Lat’s recent novel, Supreme Ambitions (Ankerwycke 2014). Judge Kozinski’s essay (co-authored with his former clerk, Fred Bernstein) considers “the conflicts that arise when a judge and a law clerk agree to disagree.” Supreme Ambitions details the rise of Audrey Coyne, a recent Yale Law School graduate who dreams of clerking for the U.S. Supreme Court someday. Audrey moves to California to clerk for Judge Christina Wong Stinson, a highly regarded appeals-court judge who is Audrey’s ticket to a Supreme Court clerkship. While working for the powerful and driven Judge Stinson, Audrey discovers that high ambitions come with a high price.
