Biskupic has covered the U.S. Supreme Court since 1989 and has written books about Justices Antonin Scalia, Sandra Day O’Connor and Sonia Sotomayor. Her latest book, on Chief Justice John Roberts, The Chief: The Life and Turbulent Times of Chief Justice John Roberts, was released on March 26. Before joining CNN as a full-time legal analyst, Biskupic covered legal affairs and the Supreme Court for ReutersUSA Today and the Washington Post.

A Chicago native, Biskupic graduated from Marquette University with a bachelor’s degree in journalism and holds a law degree from Georgetown University. A member of the District of Columbia bar since 1994, she earned a master’s degree in English from the University of Oklahoma and holds honorary degrees from both Marquette and Georgetown.

Gousha, an award-winning journalist, continues his “On the Issues” series of provocative and insightful interviews with local and national public officials, journalists and other newsmakers throughout the year. A complete schedule is available online.

Through public programming such as the Marquette Law School Poll, debates featuring candidates in significant political races, Gousha’s “On the Issues” conversations with newsmakers, public lectures by leading scholars and conferences on significant issues of public importance, the Law School serves as the region’s leading venue for serious civil discourse about law and public policy matters.
