Volume 2013, Number 2

The Board of Editors is pleased to present Issue 2 of the 2013 Volume of the Illinois Law Review.

First Professors Elmendorf and Schleicher examine the role of the law in enabling an electorate comprised of mostly ignorant voters to obtain meaningful representation and to hold elected officials accountable.

Next, Professor Robinson tests Hobbes’ view that government and law are the wellspring of social order by examining “absent-law” groups that have developed under various conditions throughout history. Professor Robinson’s findings illustrate that despite the wide variety of situations, common patterns of social cooperation and a commitment to justice emerged among the groups in their responses to their often difficult circumstances.

Following, Professor Zaring examines the revolving door between jobs in the public and private sector which supposedly incentivizes government regulators to regulate on behalf of the industry interests for whom they will eventually work.

Further, Professor Alexander examines the three phases in the government’s approach to the legal aspects of detainee policy in the “war on terrorism” in the decade since 9/11.

The issue concludes with notes by Dannia Altemimei, Kerri Eble, and Elena P. Vekilov.
