Professor Douglas E. Edlin's Judges and Unjust Laws was published by the University of Michigan Press in 2008. In his book, Professor Edlin "uses case law analysis, legal theory, constitutional history, and political philosophy to examine the power of judicial review in the common law tradition. He finds that common law tradition gives judges a dual mandate to apply the law and to develop it. There is no conflict between their official duty and their moral responsibility. Consequently, judges have the authority--perhaps even the obligation--to refuse to enforce laws that they determine unjust. As Edlin demonstrates, exploring the problems posed by unjust laws helps to illuminate the institutional role and responsibilities of common law judges."

Professor H. L. Pohlman's book, Terrorism and the Constitution: The Post 9/11 Cases, was published in 2008 by Rowman & Littlefield Publishers. This book "contributes to the ongoing national debate on civil liberties during the war on terrorism by providing easy access to relevant documents from major post-9/11 cases. The book's goal is to give students an opportunity to consider two fundamental questions and explore other issues related to them. First, is the war on terrorism a type of war that requires a shift in the balance between national security and individual rights? Second, following the 9/11 attacks, are the three branches of the federal government functioning properly?"

Professor Douglas T. Stuart's book, Creating the National Security State, was published by Princeton University Press in February 2008. "This is the definitive study of the intense political and bureaucratic struggles that surrounded the passage and initial implementation of the law. Focusing on the critical years from 1937 to 1960, Douglas Stuart shows how disputes over the lessons of Pearl Harbor and World War II informed the debates that culminated in the legislation, and how the new national security agencies were subsequently transformed by battles over missions, budgets, and influence during the early cold war."
