Judge Robert H. Bork Joins Hudson Institute

Hudson Institute

Judge Robert H. Bork has joined Hudson Institute as a distinguished fellow. He will write from Washington, D.C. on judicial activism and contemporary American culture.

We are thrilled that Judge Bork, one of our nations leading jurists, is joining Hudson Institute, said Hudson Institute President Herb London of the appointment.

Bork most recently served American Enterprise Institute as a senior fellow. He says of the move, I have decided to join Hudson Institute because it seems to me to display a profound concern for the direction of our culture and to publish the best writings on that subject. The increasing polarization within all Western nations, commonly called the culture war, is reflected in every sector of life law, religion, science, education, journalism, and popular entertainment, to name but a few. Hudson provides a strong voice in the ongoing debate about these matters.

His most recent book, Coercing Virtue: The Worldwide Rule of Judges (2003), examines judicial activism and the practice of many courts, national and international, that decide matters not committed to their authority.  He has written numerous magazine, newspaper, and law review articles.
