GOVT 30.09 Law, Courts, and Judges

This course explores fundamental questions about American law, courts, and judges.  Do courts administer “Equal Justice Under Law,” as the Supreme Court’s facade promises, or are cases determined by “what the judge ate for breakfast,” as Judge Jerome Frank famously claimed?  Are judges political?  Can courts produce social change, or is law a conservative force?  What incentives shape the legal profession?  Issues addressed range from civil rights to small claims courts and street harassment.
