Abstract

A few months ago the Green Bag issued a call for short (1,500 words) essays on “Top Ten Rankings of the Supreme Court.” We were looking for “original and empirical stud[ies] involving some kind of ranking of the Justices or their work, accompanied by illuminating analysis and commentary, that will help readers better understand the Supreme Court of the United States, the people who work there, and the products of their labors.” 18 Green Bag 2d 126. We found plenty. In fact, we received much more good work than we could print. So, we hardened our hearts and picked some excellent exemplars, and the result is this micro-symposium.

Keywords: bibliography, Justices, legal scholarship, literature, mustaches, Twitter, U.S. News & World Report, U.S. Supreme Court, women and law
