Creative moments in American law
Robert Blomquist, Aa law professor from Valparaiso University Law School, recently published a paper on SSRN titled "the 100 Most Creative Moments in American Law." According to the abstract, the article discusses the most creative moments in Anglo-American law and compares legal creativity with other kinds of creativity (corporate, artistic, military and rhetorical). The article then ranks the top hundred moments in American law. The top 10 include the Constitution, Northwest Ordinance and Marbury v. Madison. The final 20 are all Supreme Court opinions including Miranda v. Arizona and Lucas v. South Carolina Coastal Council.
