In 1973, then-Chief Justice Warren Burger, at the suggestion of his administrative assistant, Mark Cannon, created the Judicial Fellows Program to allow scholars to engage in challenging work for a year at the Supreme Court and other federal judicial agencies (Tobias 1996, 510). The program is designed to attract, in Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg's words, bright-minded, caring, uncommonly fine humans, people who remain in permanent fellowship with the Federal Judiciary after their year (Ginsburg 1998, 3).
