GAINESVILLE, Fla. -- Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas is not a fan of law school rankings.
The Yale law school graduate told University of Florida law students Friday that judging law school graduates by where they graduated from and their upbringing is like the discrimination minorities and women have fought in the past.
And when he's picking a clerk to work for him, he likes to consider non-Ivy Leaguers.
Thomas spoke candidly with the students in a session that was more about life philosophy than it was about the many decisions the court has made.
When asked what the most important decision the court has made since he was sworn in 1991, Thomas quickly said he didn't know and left it at that. But he spoke at length about life lessons he's learned.
