Barry Friedman - The Will Of The People

Monday, January 25, 2010 - 7:00pm to 8:00pm
In this history of the Supreme Court, the NYU law professor examines the Court’s development in terms of its role in democratic politics. Arguing that the Justices are not so cloistered from public opinion and prevailing political winds as is often assumed, Friedman shows that the Court’s decisions, over time, come into line with majority will.
