Fall 2001 Symposium – Legislatures, Courts, and the Contestability of Rights: A Conversation

November 16, 2001

In Law & Disagreement, Jeremy Waldron insists that “the theory … that right-bearers have the right to resolve disagreements about what rights they have among themselves and on roughly equal terms, is the only plausible rights-based theory of authority.” Waldron, accordingly, is not warmly disposed to judicial review. Some of the other participants in this conversation were more so. 

3 CLE Credits were awarded to attorneys who attended the entire symposium; 1.5 CLE credits per session were warded for partial attendance.
