In this Rehearings episode, we replay our interview with the Judge Stephen Vaden. The interview is especially relevant in light of the recent free-speech controversy at Stanford Law, because Judge Vaden talks about the free-speech crisis in legal academia. Rehearings airs our favorite old interviews on weeks when things are otherwise quiet at the Supreme Court.
