Perhaps no one in the Boston area was watching as President Obama announced his Supreme Court nominee with more anticipation than the people at Harvard Law School.

The nominee, Merrick Garland, graduated from Harvard Law in 1977. He got his undergraduate degree from Harvard College three years earlier. In more recent years, he led Harvard's Board of Overseers.

Martha Minow, dean of Harvard Law School, remembers him in his days in private practice in Washington and says Garland has served as her informal advisor. Minow joined WBUR's All Things Considered to discuss the nomination.

This segment aired on March 16, 2016.
