Abstract

The U.S. Solicitor General's Office is headed by the fourth-highest-ranking lawyer in the United States, and he is the official representative of the executive branch before the U.S. Supreme Court. He has a highly salient, unique, and special relationship with the nation's highest court. Congress established the Solicitor General's Office in 1870 when the Department of Justice was created.
