Law-RVA is an incubator of sorts for better law and politics. The enterprise draws founding inspiration from three outstanding individuals who contributed to our republic through arguments in law, politics, and related matters: John Marshall (1755-1835), Charles Hammond (1779-1840), and Abraham Lincoln (1809-1865). Each of these men had flaws and limits. But that is part of what makes their examples useful. We, too, have our flaws and limits. But it can be uplifting to try to recognize in others better versions of practical reasonableness we seek to embody ourselves.
