Looking Back while Moving Forward

Ronald Collins, "Online Alexander Bickel Symposium," SCOTUSblog (August 13, 2012).


His name was Alexander Mordecai Bickel (1924-1974). He was one of the great constitutional scholars of his day and the author of The Least Dangerous Branch: The Supreme Court at the Bar of Politics (TLDB), which was published fifty years ago this year. That anniversary is the occasion for this online symposium.
