Justice Barrett & Rejecting Judicial Supremacy with Prof. Kevin Walsh

Join the Anchoring Truths Podcast team and Professor Kevin C. Walsh from Catholic University of America Columbus School of Law for a discussion over Prof. Walsh’s fascinating talk with Justice Amy Coney Barrett. We trace the intellectual origins of judicial supremacy from Lincoln’s time to the years of the Warren Court to our current political moment and discuss the proper role of the Supreme Court to distill what the law means today.

Professor Walsh’s scholarship focuses on doctrines that define the scope of federal judicial power, and has appeared in the Georgetown Law JournalStanford Law ReviewNew York University Law Review, and the Notre Dame Law Review, among other venues.

Prior to joining Catholic Law, Professor Walsh taught at the University of Richmond School of Law for thirteen years. He previously practiced law at Hunton & Williams LLP.
