Summary
  • Endless speculation on how politics is corrupting the U.S. legal system is so ingrained in our society that it borders on a national obsession. But if we have come to accept that politics does play some role in judicial decision making, what role is left for the law itself? In What's Law Got to Do with It? the nation's top legal scholars and political scientists tell us to what extent the law actually shapes how judges make decisions, and what it means for society at large
  • The book's contributors explore ways to move past interdisciplinary impasses and reach greater accord on how judges behave, even as they reveal the divisions that remain over what that accord tells us about such issues as judicial selection. What's Law Got to Do with It? serves as an important starting point in establishing a true interdisciplinary conversation and moving it forward. Including reactions from practicing judges, it exposes the deepseated, opposing beliefs about the roles of law and politics in judicial work. Book jacket
