30 Lawyers, 30 Books: Judith Resnik
Justice Accused: Antislavery and the Judicial Process by Robert M. Cover
Judith Resnik teaches about federalism, procedure, courts, equality and citizenship at Yale Law School.
She recommends Cover’s book because it examines “how judges struggled with—and either opposed or did not—slavery, and hence provides an understanding of ‘the processes of injustice’ as well as the possibilities of justice.”
