Problem of representation and accountability from the perspective of the Office of U.S. Solicitor General

The purpose of the article is to confront two leading theories of representation and accountability of the Office of U.S. Solicitor General (SG), responsible for arguing for the United States in cases before the U.S. Supreme Court. The first theory gives the primary role to the president and the executive as the main actors which are represented by activities undertaken by SG in the Court. The second theory underlines the role of judiciary in argumentation prepared by SG for the Court thus proving close relationship between the Office and the Justices. Author gives some other possible answers to the question of actual source of representation and accountability of contemporary U.S. Solicitors’ General.
