Do We Need to Reexamine the Supreme Court?

The Supreme Court has been in everyone’s mind recently. Between the natural speculation that a new administration man bring in a few changes on the courts, and with the announcement of Justice Ginsburg’s cancer treatment speculation has run rampant. Recently though, a collection of legal professionals and scholars have suggested that we need some court reform. The National Law Journal reports that 33 legal minds have sent a reform proposal, which includes four parts, to the Vice President, the Attorney General, and the leaders of the House and Senate Judiciary Committees. The proposals outlined include regular appointments, disability, the choice of a chief justice, and the cert process. You can find the proposal itself on the website of Duke professor Paul Carrington.

Does the court need a change, or is our current system the best? If we do need reform, is this the way to go about it?
