The Empty Chair: Reflections On An Absent Justice, Jennifer L. Behrens

Faculty Scholarship

Robinson Everett: The Citizen Lawyer Ideal Lives On, David F. Levi

Faculty Scholarship

In this tribute to Professor Robinson O. Everett, Dean David Levi questions the view that the citizen-lawyer or lawyer-statesmen models are in decline.

Nothing in the current structure of the legal economy places these models out of reach for …
