Lyman Trumbull: Author Of The Thirteenth Amendment, Author Of The Civil Rights Act, And The First Second Amendment Lawyer, David B. Kopel

David B Kopel

Illinois Senator Lyman Trumbull is not well-known today, but he is one of the "Founding Sons" who transformed the nation and the Constitution before, during, and after the Civil War. He wrote the Thirteenth Amendment, the first Freedmen's Bureau Bill, and the Civil Rights Act. He sponsored the first federal statutes which actually freed slaves. As Chair of the Senate Judiciary Committee and later as a civil rights attorney, he did more to protect Second Amendment rights--including taking a test case to the U.S. Supreme Court (Presser v. Illinois)--than did any other lawyer or legislator in the ...

The Issue Is Being Intersex: The Current Standard Of Care Is A Result Of Ignorance, And It Is Amazing What A Little Analysis Can Conclude., Marla J. Ferguson

marla j ferguson

The Constitution was written to protect and empower all citizens of the United States, including those who are born with Disorders of Sex Development. The medical community, as a whole, is not equipped with the knowledge required to adequately diagnose or treat intersex babies. Intersex simply means that the baby is born with both male and female genitalia. The current method that doctors follow is to choose a sex to assign the baby, and preform irreversible surgery on them without informed consent. Ultimately the intersex babies are mutilated and robbed of many of their fundamental rights; most notably, the right ...

The Making Of A Law Teacher, Odeana R. Neal Jan 1990

The Making Of A Law Teacher, Odeana R. Neal

All Faculty Scholarship

At a meeting of the Northeast Corridor in October, 1990, Paulette Caldwell wondered aloud whether black women law teachers might be carrying on a cultural tradition of teaching. Her inquiry struck a chord with me that I hadn't heard in a long time. When I was very young, I wanted to be a teacher. I tutored younger children when I was in elementary school and commandeered a math class in junior high school after the teacher challenged me to "get up here and teach the class if you think you can do it better than I can." I thought ...

From New Deal Liberal To Supreme Court Conservative: The Metamorphosis Of Justice Sherman Minton, David N. Atkinson Jan 1975

From New Deal Liberal To Supreme Court Conservative: The Metamorphosis Of Justice Sherman Minton, David N. Atkinson

Washington University Law Review

Justice Sherman Minton served on the Supreme Court from 1949 to 1956. He was the eighty-seventh person to sit on the Court and the first from the state of Indiana. While Minton clearly was not a Justice of major stature, his development from politician to jurist deserves study. Much of the evidence presented in this Article points to the value of a theory of judicial role in offering plausible explanations of certain aspects of Minton’s behavior as a Supreme Court Justice. Thus an attempt, however limited, is made to explain as well as describe judicial behavior.
