Constitutional Law Speaker Series

This course will be ideal for students who seek close engagement with some of the best current scholarship available from academic constitutional lawyers. Prominent constitutional scholars from around the country will serve as guest lecturers. The scholars will represent diverse methods of constitutional scholarship (e.g., social-theoretical, historical, doctrinal, social scientific), as well as different approaches to basic questions of constitutional interpretation (e.g., textual, doctrinal, historical, responsive). After an introductory session, the seminar will consist of six classes in which the students will participate in guided discussions of the papers that will be presented and six classes in which students will attend the paper presentations and participate in Q&A sessions.
