Experience counts

In the post below, I argue that the quality of a Supreme Court nominee’s law school is irrelevant when it comes to assessing his or her qualifications. In my opinion, however, prior judicial experience is quite relevant. To some extent, this a just common sense. Prior experience doing the same work is universally considered important for almost every job that requires skill. I made a more nuanced argument on this matter here, in a piece for the Daily Standard.
It’s important to note, however, that while prior judicial experience is a valuable qualification, its absence doesn’t necessarily make a nominee unqualified.
