The Supreme Court Review of the National Law Journal reports that the law school clinics are playing an increasing part in Supreme Court litigation. Director of the Supreme Court Litigation Clinic Professor Jeffrey Fisher and his co-instructor Lecturer in Law Kevin K. Russell are mentioned:

Stanford's clinic, the first to form in 2003, participated in six cases, with clinic co-director Professor Jeffrey Fisher arguing on behalf of the criminal defendant in Burton v. Waddington, and clinic co-instructor Kevin K. Russell of Washington's Howe & Russell arguing on behalf of Lily Ledbetter in Ledbetter v. Goodyear, the term's major employment law challenge.
