Judicial Independence and Judicial Accountability: Searching for the Right Balance
Sponsor
The Case Western Reserve Law Review Symposium
JAN 27, 2006
9:00 AM - 4:30 PM
Location
Moot Courtroom (A59)

Recent events, such as selection of Supreme Court justices, the proposed Kelo eminent domain legislation, and the Schiavo congressional intervention statute, have brought issues of judicial independence and judicial accountability to the forefront. The interplay between Congress and the judiciary exposes balance of power issues that dictate where and how crucial decisions are made. This symposium will examine recent congressional action and discuss future solutions to controversies surrounding the federal judiciary.

Additional Information
The Law Review Symposium
Frequently current legal topics deserve closer consideration than one journal article. The Case Western Reserve Law Review presents symposia on such topics to provide a broader and deeper level of discussion and analysis by distinguished legal commentators. The emphasis of the symposium is to further the mission of the Case Western Reserve Law Review: to publish a scholarly journal that is engaging, timely, and influential.
