This year, the Program on Constitutional Structure is hosting two conferences at the Notre Dame London Centre that will bring together leading scholars from the U.S. and U.K. to address important questions of common concern to both legal systems.
The first of these will occur on October 18 and 19, 2013, when Notre Dame law professor Randy Kozel hosts a conference dedicated to exploring “International Perspectives on Public Law.” The conference will bring together leading public-law scholars from the U.K. and U.S. to share research and ideas on issues of constitutional theory, administrative law, judicial decision-making, and beyond. The event is designed as an opportunity to foster collaboration among public-law scholars across different legal systems. Participants will include: Josh Chafetz (Cornell University); Richard Ekins (St. John’s College, University of Oxford); Erin Fielding Delaney (Northwestern University); Bert Huang (Columbia University); Leslie Kendrick (University of Virginia); Jeff King (University College London); Randy Kozel (University of Notre Dame); Sophia Lee (University of Pennsylvania); George Letsas (University College London); Eva Nanopoulos (University of Cambridge); Matthew Stephenson (Harvard University); Paul Yowell (Oriel College, University of Oxford); and Grégoire Webber (London School of Economics and Political Science).
The second London conference, slated for February 2014, will consider “Statutory Interpretation and Constitutional Structure.”
