Cushman's Review Essay on the Hughes Court

Barry Cushman, Notre Dame Law School, has posted The Jurisprudence of the Hughes Court: The Recent Literature, which appeared in Notre Dame Law Review 89 (2014): 1929-2028.  The abstract explains that the essay was prepared for the Notre Dame Law Review Symposium, “The Evolution of Theory: Discerning the Catalysts of Constitutional Change.”  It “reviews five recent monographic studies of the constitutional crisis of the 1930s and the jurisprudence of the Supreme Court during the Chief Justiceship of Charles Evans Hughes.”
