The Article III Judge

Law School

Recommended for route(s):

[ Academia ] [ Litigation ] [ Regulatory & Policy ] Business Law: Finance: Banking & Bankruptcy

Why it is relevant for ...

[ Academia ] [ Litigation ] [ Regulatory & Policy ] as a Related Elective for those interested in Constitutional Law : If you expect to have a practice that involves litigation or that otherwise concerns a subject within the jurisdiction of the federal courts, you will need to understand the special role of federal judges. This course explores the proper powers granted to these judges by the U.S. Constitution.

General course Description:

The contemporary debate over the proper role of a federal judge under the Constitution turns, in large measure, on what it is we think an Article III judge is doing when she is called upon to resolve a "case or controversy." Is she looking for the fair result? If so, by whose lights? Is she a political actor, or is she instead looking for a rule of decision that has been previously established by law (a "mere translator" of the law, in Justice Frankfurter's words). If so, by natural law or positive law? These are some of the questions we will consider in discussing what role a federal judge plays when she exercises "the judicial Power of the United States" conferred by Article III of the Constitution. Readings will include books and articles by some of the leading legal thinkers in the nation's history. Special Instructions: This class will meet the first three weeks of the quarter only. Elements used in grading: Class attendance and participation, reading the assigned material, and four short papers (no longer than 3 pages each) reacting to the readings.

Course Style: A Substantive/ Perspective course looks at law from an external or non-traditional standpoint.

Course Frequency: Varied, check w/ registrar
