Rethinking the Role of the Supreme Court

Monday, February 27, 2012
04:00 PM - 06:00 PM
American University Washington College of Law, Room 603
4801 Massachusetts Avenue, NW, Washington, DC


A book talk and panel discussion with Professor Eric J. Segall of Georgia State University Law School on his provocative new book entitled: Supreme Myths: Why the Supreme Court Is Not a Court and Its Judges Are Not Judges. Scheduled for publication in February by Praeger, the book will examine the influential role the Supreme Court plays on major issues like abortion, affirmative action, and gun control and will question whether the Court behaves more like a policymaking body than a judicial one. Segall, who has been teaching constitutional law and federal courts for 20 years, will discuss his views and exchange ideas with a panel of commentators.
