Professor of Law and Vice-Dean of Academic Programming, Harvard Law School. Author of the acclaimed biography "Cardozo" (Harvard, 1998), and many books and articles on judges, legal ethics, and constitutional law. Professor Kaufman graduated from Harvard College and its law school, then clerked for Justice Felix Frankfurter of the Supreme Court. His casebook on legal ethics is considered the first such resource, and his studies of Cardozo over the years, including the prodigious book, set the standard for analytic examination of the Justice. Now he has brought that experience and insight to a new edition of Cardozo's classic book, with an explanatory Foreword from 2010.
Modern compilation and Foreword by Harvard law professor Andrew L. Kaufman, for a new generation to understand Justice Benjamin Cardozo's important and historic analysis of the way judges think and decide cases. Cardozo's frank discussion of the influences on judges, and Kaufman's expert take on Cardozo and his work, combine for an interesting study of judicial decision-making, still useful today.
