September 22, 2005 Agenda: Taking stock… Huh? Recap of Last Time Bureaucratic Legalism versus Adversarial Legalism: A Closer Look Why more adversarial legalism in the United States? Why more adversarial legalism in the United States now? What have we been doing? This is a class on the role of the law and courts in the policy-making process. In part I, we argued that courts promise to serve a number of functions in society and that they face a number of constraints. We then set out a debate –the DCV v. CCV—which is an argument about whether courts serve these functions in American society, especially the functions of correcting political and market failure (see Rosenberg and related lectures). We are now exploring this debate by looking at (a) the relationship of American courts to other political branches (see, eg, the spatial model) and (b) the ways in which American courts are organized (see Baum and Kagan).

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
