The MULS Hallows Lecture was last night. I wasn't able to attend because I was in class, but the text of the speech has been posted on the MULS website. You can access it here
. Judge Carolyn Dineen King of the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals gave the talk, entitled Challenges to Judicial Independence and the Rule of Law: A Perspective from the Circuit Courts. I only had time to skim the speech, but it looks interesting and timely. Judicial independence seems to be on the minds of many, including Supreme Court Justices.
