Barry Friedman, Vice Dean and Jacob D. Fuchsberg Professor of Law at New York University School of Law, discusses his recently published book, The Will of the People, a historical account of the relationship between popular opinion and the Supreme Court from the Declaration of Independence to the end of Rehnquist Court in 2005. Friedman shows how the American public came to embrace judicial power, and in so doing, helped shape the meaning of the Constitution itself. Books will be available for sale in the third floor loggia of the Law School immediately after the lecture, followed by a book signing with Professor Friedman. Event will be webcast live at http://www.law.duke.edu/news/. For more information, contact Dana Norvell at email@example.com.
