The Corner

Judicial Abdication

Today’s Between the Covers podcast is with Clark M. Neily III, author of Terms of Engagement: How Our Courts Should Enforce the Constitution’s Promise of Limited Government. We discuss what judges are doing wrong today, why conservatives should rethink their commitment to judicial restraint, and why the courts are so reluctant to toss out laws that violate the Constitution.

John J. Miller, the national correspondent for National Review and host of its Great Books podcast, is the director of the Dow Journalism Program at Hillsdale College. He is the author of A Gift of Freedom: How the John M. Olin Foundation Changed America.
