Professor Reviews Book by Judge Richard Posner

Professor S.I. Strong recently reviewed Judge Richard Posner’s most recent book, Divergent Paths: The Academy and the Judiciary in volume 66 of the Journal of Legal Education. Professor Strong’s article, subtitled “How Legal Academics Can Participate in Judicial Education: A How-To Guide by Richard Posner,” focused on ways that legal academics can assist sitting and future judges in fulfilling their judicial duties. Though many of Judge Posner’s suggestions are somewhat revolutionary, they provide interesting insights into how one of the United States’ leading minds believes the legal academy can support and strengthen a well-functioning and independent judiciary.
