Reflections on judging / Richard A. Posner. Harvard University Press, 2013.

KF9050.P55 2013

 

Reflections on Judging is a collection of observations made by the author in light of his experiences on the bench.  The author discusses the influence of changing technology on trial practice, and offers advice to lawyers and judges on how to improve their professional performance.  The author also gives his criticisms of problems he sees in the modern litigation process, and makes an argument that a philosophy of legal realism should replace the formal systems of statutory and constitutional interpretation used by many judges today.
