Bill is also the founder and general counsel of the Immigrant Legal Resource Center.

This Friday's episode considers three important rulings that issued from the country's high court, in its penultimate week before summer recess.

Anna-Rose Mathieson, a partner with the California Appellate Law Group, and a former U.S. Supreme Court law clerk joins the podcast to discuss perhaps the court's most significant ruling of the term, Fisher v. University of Texas, a case involving affirmative action in which the court, by a 4-3 vote, left intact a race-conscious admissions program employed by the school. She'll also discuss Encino Motorcars v. Navarro, a case dealing with whether service advisors at car dealerships must be paid overtime, per the Fair Labor Standards Act.

Next Professor Hing, who directs his school's Immigration and Deportation Defense Clinic, will join the show to discuss the court's four-four affirmance order in U.S. v. Texas, which essentially rings a death knell for two immigration reform measures introduced by President Obama in 2014.
