Madison is the Most Important Case decided by the United States Supreme Court.” He was invited to do so because Poland is confronting an ongoing dispute over parliament’s appointment power of members of the Polish Constitutional Tribunal.

Research Guides for Help with Summer Work

You probably have the basics of legal research down at this point, but when you start your summer clerkship or other legal position, you could be in for a surprise. You might be asked to research an area that’s unfamiliar to you. If so, you can turn to our research guides, kept current by law librarians. Research guides can provide good ideas for starting places (think secondary sources), as well as leads on the primary law. Topics include admin law, health law, labor and employment law, legislative history, and many more.

Don’t forget, you can always contact a reference librarian for more help.

C_SAGERS.jpgChris Sagers, the James A. Thomas Professor of Law, spoke with Bloomberg for a story about the Justice Department’s unprecedented, last-minute attempt to intervene in FTC v. Qualcomm, an antitrust trial already fully litigated by the Federal Trade Commission. The case awaits only the trial judge’s final opinion, but DOJ sought to intervene to present its views urging the court to limit any antitrust remedy it might impose. While it remains unclear what role DOJ intends to play or what objections it might have to the FTC’s suit, the move has been taken to signal policy conflict between the agencies that has never manifested in this way.
