Roberts answered questions from current law students about the nation’s highest court. He says he doesn’t want to comment on the legislative branch of the government because they represent the people.

He did briefly mentioned the newest appointee to the bench, Justice Brent Kavanaugh.

“As our newest colleague put it, we do not sit on opposite sides of an aisle. We do not caucus in separate rooms. We do not serve one party our one interest. We serve one nation,” Roberts said.
