Frank I. Michelman, Dilemmas of Belonging: Moral Truth, Human Rights, and Why We Might Not Want a Representative Judiciary, 47 UCLA L. Rev. 1221 (2000).

Abstract: Professor and author Kenneth L. Karst believes that the case for judicial review rests heavily on the courts' unique ability to advance the cause of a unified, diverse, national community. Karst believes that the US could use a more experientially and culturally diversified judiciary than it now has. It is suggested, however, that a representative judiciary may not be what is needed.
