CSDR / LL.M. PROGRAM NEWS

HARTER PUBLISHES ARTICLE ON DELIBERATIVE DEMOCRACY
Prof. Philip J. Harter published an article, "A Plumber Responds to the Philosophers: A Comment on Professor Menkel-Meadow's Essay on Deliberative Democracy," 3 Nevada Law Journal 379 (2004-2005). He argues that negotiated rulemaking has been a striking success in resolving complex issues and that it is the closest example we have of an actual deliberative democracy in action. He challenges Prof. Menkel-Meadows view that lawyers should play an increasing role as the mediators in policy mediations. Rather, he contends that although they possess many laudable skills, the field was built by a variety of backgrounds and perspectives and that diversity should be continued lest the field become too narrow and codified.
