200 Years, Countless Stories: Paul Clement

In the “Countless Stories” video series, alumni from across the generations share their HLS experience and explain the difference their legal education has made in their lives.

In this segment, Paul Clement ’92, a former United States Solicitor General and current partner at the law firm of Kirkland & Ellis, discusses his advocacy before the Supreme Court. Clement has argued more than 90 cases before the Court, including McConnell v. FEC, Tennessee v. Lane, Rumsfeld v. Padilla, Credit Suisse v. Billing, United States v. BookerMGM v. Grokster, ABC v. Aereo, and Hobby Lobby v. Burwell. Read more about Clement in the 2012 Winter article, “‘Defending unpopular positions is what lawyers do’ says Paul Clement ’92,” in the Harvard Law Bulletin.
