Judicial Independence andJudicial Accountability inthe States
G. Alan arr
Te impartial administration o  justice and the accountability o government ocials are two o themost strongly held American values.Yet these values are ofen in directconict with one another. At thenational level, the U.S. Constitutionresolves this tension in avor o  judicial independence, insulating judges rom the undue inuence o other political institutions, interestgroups, and the general public.But at the state level, debate hascontinued as to the proper balancebetween judicial independence and judicial accountability. In this volume,constitutional scholar G. Alan arrocuses squarely on that debate.
