9750 Words on Elena Kagan

Below, we discuss the most significant aspects of Elena Kagan’s experience and writings as they relate to the Supreme Court.  We also consider various criticisms that have been raised against Kagan, including with respect to her views on the military (supposedly too liberal) and executive power (supposedly too conservative), as well as the prospect that she will be required to recuse from a substantial number of cases early in her tenure on the Court. We separately discuss the specific votes she likely will receive for and against her confirmation.  Each separate section below is identified by its author(s).
