The retired Supreme Court justice visited his alma mater Harvard Law School to judge the final round of the Ames Moot Court competition, according to a press release from the school. The release touts that the competition “stands out for its rigor” in part because of its ability to draw Supremes. (As a side note, this writer also argued before Souter at a moot court competition years ago, across the Charles River from Harvard at Boston University School of Law. So we were fancy too.)
The press release does contain an interesting piece of trivia: as a law student Souter, described as a “wild card” ended up in student health services for injuries he sustained in a casual swordfight.
