The Board of Editors is pleased to present Issue 1 of the 2013 Volume of the Illinois Law Review.
First, Professor Sperino demonstrates the theoretical and practical difficulties of importing proximate cause principles into employment discrimination law.
Next, Professor Morag-Levine offers an alternative reading of the origins of the Brandeis Brief and of its relation to the constitutional conflicts of the Lochner era.
Following, Professor Tabb demonstrates how the financial world for which the 1978 Bankruptcy Code was written has fundamentally changed, with the rise of dominant secured creditors. This has upset the balance of power, rendering the Code’s scheme obsolete with regard to credit bidding.
Next, Professor Lewinsohn-Zamir challenges the conventional wisdom that monetary remedies are usually a satisfactory substitute for in-kind redress.
Further, Professor Kairys reveals stark differences between the Court’s treatment of modes of speech available to people of ordinary means, and modes available to corporations and the wealthy, and argues that this disparate treatment skews, corrupts, and undermines the democratic process.
