Adam Liptak, the New York Times national legal correspondent, is the author of the Times' highly accessible legal column Sidebar, which covers and considers developments in the world of law, explaining the significance of legal developments, the stories of the underlying court cases, and the intersecting orbits of lawyers, clients, lawmakers, scholars and judges. Here, visitors will find an archive of that column and all of Liptak's writing for the Times since 1984. With the recent release of Supreme Court rulings from the last session, and debates over same-sex marriage, the rights of Guantanamo detainees, and capital punishment methods, it is clear that we should monitor these very important issues as they make their way through the court system. Liptak will help keep you informed and curious about the American legal environment.
