On Thursday, November 7, 2019, Judith Resnick, Arthur Liman Professor of Law at Yale Law School, will present her program, "The Invention and the Fragility of Democratic Courts." In this program, Professor Resnik will use imagery and data to track the impact of democratic values on courts. Historically, courts were exclusionary venues. Only in the twentieth century did courts become committed to treating all persons as equals. Yet democracy has not only changed the courts, it has challenged them as well. Professor Resnik will discuss both the emergence of new roles for federal and state courts and the current decline of the public practices that have been a hallmark of adjudication.
This program is being presented by the Appellate Lawyers Association, along with its cosponsors the Armenian Bar Association, the Hellenic Bar Association, and the Women's Bar Association.
