The Appellate Lawyers Association
Cordially Invites You to Attend
Its November Luncheon Program
“The Invention and the
Fragility of Democratic Courts”
Arthur Liman Professor of Law at Yale Law School
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.
