Helping Congress Rewrite the Judicial Code: An Inside Look at the Legislative Process
Professor of Law Arthur Hellman will be giving a talk regarding his experiences and the work he has done advising Congress on rewriting the Judicial Code. This talk is open to all interested students, and pizza will be made available.
Professor Hellman has achieved a national reputation as a scholar of the federal courts. He is one of the leading academic commentators on issues of federal judicial ethics, and his unique series of empirical studies on the operation of precedent in the U.S. Supreme Court and the courts of appeals has been used as a basis for policy decisions at both the federal and state levels over the past several decades.
