Anna Prakash on baking, insane recall and aspiring to the RBG Workout

Discovery with Anna P. Prakash

The SCOTUS decision I’d overturn is … would you accept a string cite? No? Fine. Then, Citizens United.

If you were in my office, you’d … be surprised by how much we laugh.

When I was a newbie lawyer I … thought the sky was falling.

When I started, I wish I knew … that the sky can’t really fall.

Nothing cheers me up like … cake; specifically, eating the frosting off a cake.

My guilty pleasure is … see above re: cake/frosting.

The quality I most like in a lawyer is … in opposing counsel? Not being a jerk. In my colleagues? Not being a jerk.

I can’t believe more people haven’t read … Exit West by Mohsin Hamid. I have recommended it to everyone I know and, for a lucky few, have given it as a gift.

If I weren’t a lawyer, I’d be … a baker.

A different practice area that intrigues me is … is baking law a thing?

The SCOTUS justice I’d like to meet is … Please. Is there really any question? Justice Ginsburg.

On weekends I … try to work out as seriously as Justice Ginsburg does.

My most bizarre talent is … having an insane memory.

The talent I wish I had is … not having such an insane memory. Good for remembering case law, bad for forgiving and forgetting.

The craziest thing I witnessed in a courtroom is … a juror clipping his fingernails in the jury box during testimony (yuck).

I wish I had invented … Netflix. I mean, I definitely thought of this in college and just didn’t bother to do anything about it.

The last TV show I binge-watched was … The OA. Now streaming on my brainchild, Netflix.

If I had a morning show, my co-host would be … national treasure Chrissy Teigen. I’d have to meet her first, though.

The question I wish people would stop asking is … “No, but where are you originally from?” When I tell you I’m from Minnesota, say something like, “I love Minnesota!” I’ll also accept comments about Prince, wild rice, snow, and/or the lakes.

I can’t go a day without … texting with my dad. He’s the best.
