Stanford Law School Professor and Co-director Supreme Court Litigation Clinic
Jeffrey L. Fisher’s academic and Supreme Court work runs the gamut of federal constitutional and statutory matters, but focuses on constitutional criminal procedure issues.
Professor Fisher has argued 24 cases in the Supreme Court, including successfully representing the petitioners in Crawford v. Washington, Melendez-Diaz v. Massachusetts, Blakely v. Washington, Kennedy v. Louisiana, and, most recently Riley v. California. In 2006, the National Law Journal named him one of the 100 most influential lawyers in the country – the youngest person on the list – and he has remained on that list since. He also is a recipient of the Heeney Award, the highest honor bestowed by the National Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers.
Professor Fisher formerly served as a law clerk to Justice John Paul Stevens on the Supreme Court of the United States and to Judge Stephen Reinhardt on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit.
