Above the Law
Founder & Managing Editor
New York, NY, USA


David Lat is founding editor and editor at large of Above the Law, an award-winning website about the legal profession that reaches more than 1 million unique visitors a month. David’s writing has also appeared in the New York Times, the Wall Street Journal, and the Washington Post, among other publications. Prior to Above the Law, he launched Underneath Their Robes, a blog about federal judges.

Before entering the media world, David worked as a federal prosecutor in Newark, New Jersey; a litigation associate at Wachtell, Lipton, Rosen & Katz, in New York; and a law clerk to Judge Diarmuid F. O’Scannlain of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit. David graduated from Harvard College and Yale Law School, where he served as an editor of the Yale Law Journal.

David’s first book, Supreme Ambitions: A Novel, was published in 2014. According to the New York Times, “for an elite niche — consisting largely of federal judges and their clerks — Supreme Ambitions has become the most buzzed-about novel of the year.”
