Stephen Sachs and Ernest Young Digging a Hole: The Legal Theory Podcast

    • Social Sciences

Stephen Sachs and Ernest Young, professors of law at Duke University, join us for a debate on the Erie doctrine. We pit these two scholars against one another to find out whether Erie was wrongly decided. Should state courts have the “last word” on interpretations of state law? Should we limit the role of general law? Does any of this matter?

Additional readings, including any referenced during the episode, are available on our website: DiggingAHolePodcast.com.
