Judicial Independence and the Federal Courts: A Historical Perspective

The panels are “Panel 1: Judicial Independence and the Early Federal Courts;” “Panel 2: Judicial Independence and the Federal Courts in the 20th Century;” and “Panel 3: Judicial Independence and the Federal Courts in the 21st Century.”
ALI panel participants included Professor Stephen B. Burbank of University of Pennsylvania Law School, Director of the Federal Judicial Center John S. Cooke, Professor Michael J. Gerhardt of UNC School of Law, President and CEO of the National Constitution Center Jeffrey Rosen, and Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit Chief Judge Diane P. Wood.
