Law360’s Pro Say: Trump Looks To Transform The Courts

By Law360 Staff | March 9, 2018, 5:09 PM EST

On the latest episode of Law360's Pro Say podcast, we examine the Trump administration’s efforts to push the judicial branch to the right, discuss Trump’s controversial trade moves, and explain how “inclusion riders” work.

Each week on Pro Say, Law360 staffers Amber McKinney, Bill Donahue and Alex Lawson bring you inside the newsroom and break down what you need to know about key legal developments.

This week, we’re going to take a hard look at the Trump administration’s efforts to reshape the judicial branch. Trump has had a historic opportunity to appoint a huge number of judges. How has that effort panned out so far? And what can we expect going forward?

We're joined by senior reporter Ed Beeson to talk us through some forces that could slow down Trump’s progress. Then, senior reporter Jimmy Hoover talks with us about one district that has been overlooked in the swell of judicial appointments.

Also this week, we discuss Trump’s controversial move to impose tariffs on aluminum and steel imports, and we unpack “inclusion riders,” which were put in the spotlight by Frances McDormand’s Oscar speech.
