dc.description.abstractBeginning with quantitative studies of bottom-line win-loss rates, the literature on interest group litigation success has progressed to the more qualitative comparison of judicial reasoning with the arguments submitted by a particular interest group. The next logical step is to compare judicial reasoning with all of the submissions placed before the court, not just those of the interest group in question. Such painstaking comparison is time consuming and the results are likely to be open to interpretive dispute; nevertheless, it is in principle the best way to assess the effectiveness of an interest group's litigation strategies. This thesis undertakes such a study of the effectiveness of the Women's Legal Education and Action Fund (LEAF) in 14 Supreme Court cases.
