Matt Gregory, ’14, received an unforgettable gift last Christmas when he was offered a coveted clerkship with U.S. Supreme Court Associate Justice Anthony Kennedy for the 2017 term.
Justice Kennedy personally called Gregory the day after his in-person interview, which was held in late December, to share the good news. “Justice Kennedy is someone I have a lot of respect and admiration for, and this is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to clerk for the Supreme Court,” Gregory says.
Gregory is an associate at Gibson, Dunn & Crutcher LLP in Washington, D.C., where he practices administrative law and appellate litigation. He previously clerked for the Hon. Raymond Kethledge, ’93, of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit. Gregory will be the 33rd Michigan Law graduate to clerk for current and former Supreme Court justices since 1991, and the third to clerk for Justice Kennedy. —LA
