For one reason or another, it looks like I forgot to post my updated advocate scorecard for the decade at the end of the last term. Originally published in 2009, it shows the number of times that notable advocates have argued in the last decade, beginning in October 2000 and ending April 2010. If you want more information on how I chose to include different advocates, refer to the post where I published the first edition, here.

Decade Advocate Scorecard (.pdf)

For a quick glimpse, these are the top 10:

1. Paul D. Clement (52)
2. Theodore B. Olson (43)
3. Michael R. Dreeben (39)
3. Edwin S. Kneedler (39)
5. Carter G. Phillips (34)
6. Malcolm L. Stewart (31)
7. Gregory G. Garre (30)
8. Seth P. Waxman (29)
9. David C. Frederick (21)
9. Patricia A. Millet (21)
9. Matthew D. Roberts (21)

Notably, only Phillips and Waxman received all of their arguments in the relevant period while in private practice. The rest of the advocates, including Clement and Olson, argued a large number of cases while in the Solicitor General’s office.
