The Volokh Conspiracy
Mostly law professors | Sometimes contrarian | Often libertarian | Always independent
Fred Shapiro of the Yale Law Library—editor of the Yale Book of Quotations and the Oxford Dictionary of American Legal Quotations—writes:
I am working on the second edition of the Yale Book of Quotations. At some point I might be working on the second edition of the Oxford Dictionary of American Legal Quotations. For both of those projects, I would welcome any suggestions of famous or historically important or particularly eloquent legal quotations from the last 30 years. Quotations could come from judicial opinions, law-related books or articles, political speeches or debates or commentary, trials or the annals of crime, etc.
