``Each Supreme Court justice has three or four law clerks -- recent law school graduates who act as the justices' assistants for a year or two. The author of ``Closed Chambers,'' Edward Lazarus, was a law clerk for Justice Harry A. Blackmun for the court term 1988-1989 (known as October Term 1988) -- the year that is the principal focus of the book. I had the honor to serve as a law clerk for Justice Byron R. White that same term. (One of my colleagues at the KU law school, Steve McAllister, clerked for Justices White and Clarence Thomas in subsequent terms.)''
