The issue (Vol. 29, No. 2), which may prove to be one of the journal’s most popular, features papers that were presented by the country’s most respected election and constitutional law experts at a March 2001 College of Law symposium on the 2000 presidential election.“I think that, over time, the issue will serve as an historical document,” Kellogg said. “It describes the events of Bush versus Gore and features the legal analyses of some of the nation’s leading constitutional and election law experts. Many academics, practitioners, and journalists already have requested copies of the issue, which I believe provides some evidence of its importance.”In addition to the scholars’ papers, one of which was written by FSU law Professor Steve Gey, the Review includes an introduction by former Florida Gov. Reubin Askew, who attended the symposium, and a response to one of the papers by federal judge and renowned legal scholar Richard Posner.The FSU Law Review is posted on the school’s Web site, www.law.fsu.edu/journals/lawreview/index.php.Hard copies, available from the Law Review office, can be obtained by calling (850) 644-2046.last_img read more
