Panelists consider the personal and professional background of Associate Justice Sonia Sotomayor in an attempt to imagine the sort of Justice that she is most likely to become both methodologically and ideologically. Topics include areas of the law in which she may vote differently than Justice Souter did; the potential relevance of her ethnic background to the way in which she will execute her judicial responsibilities; and the possible effects that her varied legal experiences will have on how she approaches the job.
