Jack B. Weinstein is Senior Judge, United States District Court, Eastern District of New York. This essay comprises the final two parts in a three-part series entitled "Limits on Judges' Learning, Speaking, and Acting." The first part, "Learning," was originally given as a speech on November 15, 1993, at the University of Arizona Law School. That lecture appears at 36 Ariz. L. Rev. 539 (1994). Part II, "Speaking," and Part III, "Acting," were presented at the University of Dayton School of Law on April 14, 1994, as part of the School of Law's 1994 E.S. Gallon & Associates Distinguished Scholar-in-Residence Program. An overview of the series in its entirety was published at 77 Judicature 322 (1994), and is based upon the Charles Evans Hughes Lecture given at the house of the New York County Lawyers Association in New York City on March 31, 1994. These are tentative views; the author welcomes criticisms and suggestions.
