Dan Epps, the Treiman Professor of Law at Washington University in St. Louis, testified before the Presidential Commission on the Supreme Court of the United States on July 20.

The commission is comprised of bipartisan experts who will weigh in on the value and legality of proposed court reforms.

After 2020 presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg endorsed Epps’ and Ganesh Sitaraman’s proposal to restructure the Supreme Court, the plan received widespread attention from the popular press. Epps currently co-hosts, with William Baude, the podcast “Divided Argument,” which analyzes the high court’s decisions.
