SEC hires former Supreme Court clerk as deputy general counsel

The SEC named as deputy general counsel Anne K. Small, whose r?sum? includes an undergraduate degree with honors from Yale, a law degree with high honors from Harvard, the presidency of the Harvard Law Review (a position once held by President Obama), and perhaps the most prestigious career-booster for young lawyers, a clerkship at the U.S. Supreme Court, where she worked for Justice Stephen G. Breyer.
