A Legal Theory Workshop with McGill alumnus Scott Lemieux, Professor of Political Science at the College of Saint Rose (Albany, New York): "Compared to What? Judicial Review and Other Veto Points in Contemporary Democratic Theory"

Abstract:

Many democratic and jurisprudential theorists have too often uncritically accepted Alexander Bickel's notion of "the countermajoritarian difficulty" when considering the relationship between judicial review and democracy (this is the case for arguments both for and against judicial review).
