Eric Segall

Law plays a very, very marginal role in the decision of hard constitutional cases. . . . What the [U. S. Supreme Court] justices do is make value judgments. They cloak them in history and texts, but they really make value judgments.

Eric J. Segall is the Kathy and Lawrence Ashe Professor of Law at the Georgia State University College of Law where he teaches federal courts and constitutional law. He has written numerous law review articles on constitutional law and other legal topics, and has given many speeches inside and outside the academy on constitutional law questions and the Supreme Court.

Segall appears regularly on Stand Up! with Pete Dominic talking about the Supreme Court and constitutional law. He is the author Supreme Myths: Why the Supreme Court is not a Court and its Justices are not Judges.
