Constitutional Law Colloquium

This is an advanced seminar that will bring together outside scholars, resident faculty, and Northwestern students for an exchange of views about cutting-edge research on constitutional theory. On six occasions during the semester, a workshop will be held at which a leading scholar will present a paper growing out of his or her research on issues of constitutional law. These workshops will be attended by members of the faculty of the School of Law, faculty from other schools and departments within and without Northwestern, and interested students.

On weeks when there is no outside speaker, the seminar will meet to review the previous workshops and to discuss an upcoming paper or papers. Students are required to write short critiques of each forthcoming paper, which will provide the foundation for seminar discussions and will be shared with the authors in advance of their presentations.
