Battles over the appointment of federal judges are as old as the republic itself, but recently they have intensified. Few things are more important to the functioning of a constitutional democracy, particularly one that gives courts the power of judicial review, than how judges are selected. Jurocracy and Distrust: Reconsidering the Federal Judicial Appointments Process will gather leading academics to assess the law and politics surrounding this issue at Benjamin N. Cardozo School of Law of Yeshiva University at 55 Fifth Avenue at 12th St. The symposium is on Monday, March 22 from 9:30 am to 5:30 pm and is free to the public with advance reservations.
