ARTICLE: A Hypothetical Conversation Between a Judge and an Expert

Fall, 1999

In order to get this program started, I have selected someone to be a moderator for our program. That's Raul Gonzalez from Texas, formerly of the Texas Supreme Court. Thank you very much, Raul. It's been a pleasure having you involved.

He has a law degree from Yale Law School. ...
