Abstract:     
In an effort to summarize the first decade of the Burger Court, the greatest single distinguishing fact separating this Court from its predecessors revolves around how the Court treats the notion of liberty. While the Burger Court has not drastically departed from the Warren Courts concept of liberty, the focus of liberty rights has shifted from the protection of personal choice to the protection of personal property.
