Collins' Book Selected as Choice Outstanding Academic Title 2014

Supreme Court Confirmation Hearings and Constitutional Change, coauthored by Director of Legal Studies and 2015 Public Engagement Project Fellow Paul Collins (with Lori Ringhand), was selected as a Choice Outstanding Academic Title for 2014. 

The book challenges the commonly held belief that Supreme Court confirmation hearings are little more than political grandstanding. Instead, Collins and Ringhand demonstrate that the hearings are important forums for debating the contemporary meaning of the constitution. The book was described in Choice as “a game changer.”
