The Costa Method

Today, our hosts are thrilled to be joined by Federal Court of Appeals Judge Gregg Costa of the 5th Circuit. In today’s extra-nerdy pod, our esteemed guest gives Sarah and David his expert take on serial clerkships, amicus briefs, nationwide injunctions, and more. Plus, he offers up an inside scoop on how he approaches his judicial philosophy, what he thinks is the proper role for legal advocates in the courtroom, and why “the hardest job [he] ever had was before law school teaching fourth grade.”
