Harvard Law Review, Vol. 124, No. 7, p. 13, 2011
Yale Law School, Public Law Working Paper No. 235
In a recent book review of The Decline and Fall of the American Republic, Professor Trevor Morrison challenged the book's critique of the Office of Legal Counsel and the White House Counsel, arguing that both these institutions are fundamentally sound. Professor Ackerman rejoins the debate to argue that Morrison's analysis fails to undermine the basic case for far-reaching reform. He suggests that, so long as existing institutions remain in place, future generations confront the serious danger that recent legal pathologies will repeat themselves.
