In Her Words ...
"Justice Brandeis described two fundamental human limitations: 'First, that no man can serve two masters; second, that a man cannot at the same time do many things well.' (Louis D. Brandeis, Other People’s Money,1913). I am interested in how the law responds to these and other human limitations."
