S. 537 (1896). 47. See id. at 550–51. 48. Cf. S. Const. art. III, § 1 (distinguishing the Supreme Court from “such inferior Courts as the Congress may from time to time ordain and establish”). 49.

Rev. 34, 34–42 (1992) (arguing that the gap between legal academics and judges should be bridged by means of “practical” scholarship that combines the ory with doctrine); Sanford Levinson, Judge Edwards’ Indictment of “Impractical” Scholars: The Need for a Bill of Particulars, 91 Mich.
