Professor Collins is a guest on WBUR this week, recapping Neil Gorsuch's Supreme Court confirmation hearings. 

Professor Collins speculates questions that the Senate Judiciary Committee might ask Gorsuch on 22 News: "I think you will see questions by senators about President Trump’s attacks on judges, and how Judge Gorsuch feels about that. I think you will have some questions about the immigration ban that is currently being considered."
