Beth Brinkmann, co-chair of the Supreme Court Appeals and Trial Group at Covington & Burling, has tried 25 cases before the Supreme Court and is one of the most experienced attorneys to practice today. In the latest installment in our “SCOTUS Spotlight” series on verbal advocacy, SCOTUStalk host Amy Howe sits down with Brinkmann to discuss what is needed to develop this expertise. Brinkmann reports on her first hearing in court while she was working in the attorney general’s office – and later helped change that firm’s hiring practices so that more women can work there. She advises lawyers who appear in court and tells a memorable story of the birth, win a case, and loss of her mentor, Justice Harry Blackmun, within 48 hours.
