UC Berkeley Public Law Research Paper No. 1474044

Abstract:     
Phil Frickey has made important contributions to constitutional law, statutory interpretation, and Indian law. This is the Introduction to a forthcoming symposium in the California Law Review on Frickey's scholarship. The contributors include Bethany Berger, James Brudney, William Eskridge, Sarah Krakoff, John Manning, Robert Post, Peter Strauss and Ernie Young.

Besides providing an overview, the Introduction explores three important themes of Frickey's scholarship: (1) his reliance on practical reasoning by judges; (2) his emphasis on respecting the institutional role of the legislature; and (3) his view that judges must mediate between certain conflicting values without being able to provide a permanent resolution of the conflict.
