Examining the Rule of Law

Setup

“When we [Americans] talk about the rule of law, we assume that we’re talking about a law that promotes freedom, that promotes justice, that promotes equality,” US Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy said in 2007. The rule of law is fundamental to our democracy. Critical challenges loom, however, as our citizens today disagree sharply over some of our nation’s most vexing issues, ranging from national security to our economic future to the very functioning of our political process. Are we at risk of abandoning long-standing legal and constitutional norms and understandings? How should the guarantees of our Constitution shape this dilemma? Are there governmental and societal processes in place today that will enable us to ensure “liberty and justice for all” for our children and our children’s children? Three distinguished jurists discuss the challenges we face as a nation.
