"Judicial Activism" at Penn

I had a great time yesterday, at Penn Law, discussing and celebrating with a great group of folks the publication of Kim Roosevelt's new book, "The Myth of Judicial Activism."  On the plane home, I (belatedly) read this new-ish essay by Larry Alexander, "Constitutions, Judicial Review, Moral Rights, and Democracy:  Disentangling the Issues."  (Thanks to Larry Solum for the link.)  Check it out.

Here, by the way, is an op-ed by Roosevelt, in which he outlines the thesis of his book.  Here is a critical review of the book by Ed Whelen.  And, here is an online exchange, thanks to the Penn Law Review, between Roosevelt and me about his claims.

One of the things, by the way, that I really liked about the event was that it had a loose, faculty-workshop feel to it, but there were a good number of students there.
