The Legal History Podcast

EPISODE 5: William Domnarski

May 25, 2019

In this episode, Siobhan interviews attorney and author William Domnarski about his new biography of Richard Posner, an influential judge on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit and great force behind the law and economics movement. Domnarski candidly sets forth the factors which underlie an individual who is arguably the most influential legal mind of the past half-century. With the full cooperation of his subject, Domnarski had access to Posner’s letters and to many individuals who may have been unwilling to speak without the approval of Posner himself.  Domnarski explores important themes within law and the judiciary while also keeping the reader invested in a very human story.
