This essay aims to improve scholars’ understanding of the power dynamics that shape Supreme Court precedent. It argues that the Supreme Court bar heavily favors big business because it was built for that purpose.

Politically savvy business leaders then responded by creating private appellate practices molded after the Solicitor General’s Office.
