The Commission is exploring various dimensions of the debate over Court reform, including the origins of the current debate over reform and the strengths and weaknesses of various reform proposals such as Court expansion, promoting turnover on the Court, and redefining the Court's role in relation to other branches in the resolution of major political and social issues.
