Façonner le « gardien de la conscience » : Les présidents des Etats-Unis et les juges de la Cour suprême

Abstract : The Constitution provides that the Supreme Court Justices be appointed by the President with the consent of the Senate, thereby creating a remarkable institutional interaction between the three branches of power. Political considerations dominate the analysis of the Court in institutional terms, whether this is at the stage of the designation of its members, the performance of their duty or their resignation. The equally political dimension of its functions, noticeable in its constitutional jurisprudence, have raised questions about the necessity to make this institution more representative of the society it governs.
