Beth Brinkman, Co-Chair of the Appeals Group and Supreme Court at Covington & Burling, has argued 25 cases before the Supreme Court and is one of the most experienced advocates today. In the final episode of “SCOTUS Spotlight” on oral advocacy, SCOTUStalk host Amy Howe sits with Brinkmann to talk about what it takes to develop this level of expertise. Brinkman narrates her first oral argument in court while working for the Solicitor General’s office – and later, she helped change hiring practices in that office to allow more women to work there. She advises lawyers who appear in court and tells an unforgettable story of childbirth, winning a lawsuit and losing her mentor, Judge Harry Blackmon, all within 48 hours.
