The Invention of Courts
On December 4, 2014, several panelists participated in a conversation on the function of courts in the United States. Included were Judith Resnik (Arthur Liman Professor of Law at Yale Law School), Jonathan Lippman (Chief Judge of the State of New York and Chief Judge of the Court of Appeals), Carol S. Steiker (Henry J. Friendly Professor of Law at Harvard Law School), Susan S. Silbey (Leon and Anne Goldberg Professor of Humanities, Anthropology, and Sociology and Professor of Behavioral and Policy Sciences at the Sloan School of Management at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology), Jamal Greene (Vice Dean and Professor of Law at Columbia Law School), and Linda Greenhouse (Knight Distinguished Journalist in Residence and Joseph Goldstein Lecturer in Law at Yale Law School). The program, which served as the 2013th Stated Meeting, included a welcome from Jonathan F. Fanton (President of the American Academy).
