Merrick Garland gives emotional response to senator's question

Garland attended Harvard College on a scholarship, graduating as valedictorian with an A.B. degree summa cum laude and Phi Beta Kappa in social studies in 1974.[6][14][15] He initially wanted to become a physician, but quickly decided to become an attorney instead.[11] Garland allied himself with his future boss, Jamie Gorelick, when he was elected the only freshman member of a campus-wide committee on which Gorelick also served.[16] During his college summers Garland volunteered as Congressman Abner J. Mikva's speechwriter.[16] After President Jimmy Carter appointed Mikva to the D.C. Circuit, Mikva would rely on Garland when selecting clerks.[17] At Harvard, Garland wrote news articles and theater reviews for the Harvard Crimson and worked as a Quincy House tutor.[18][19] Garland wrote his 235-page honors thesis on industrial mergers in Britain in the 1960s.[16][20]

Garland then attended Harvard Law School, graduating with a J.D. magna cum laude in 1977.[14] During law school, Garland was a member of the Harvard Law Review, serving as an articles editor from 1976 to 1977.[15] As an articles editor, Garland assigned himself to edit a submission by Justice William Joseph Brennan Jr.[16][17] on the topic of the role of state constitutions in safeguarding individual rights.[21] Garland's correspondence with Brennan ultimately helped him win a clerkship with the justice.[21] Garland ran for president of the Review, but lost to Susan Estrich.[16]
