30 Nov Congratulations to Vicki Jackson on her Constitutional Comparativism Book
Several times in the last couple of years I’ve had the privilege of appearing on panels with Georgetown law professor Vicki Jackson, talking about constitutional comparativism. She is always a pleasure to listen to and engage with on this topic. It’s been a hot topic in the last few years, and several OJ’ers have weighed in, including Roger and me. So I am delighted to note that her new book, Constitutional Engagement in a Transnational Era (Oxford) is just out, and I look forward to reading it. There is a discussion and reception for the book tomorrow, December 1, and I take it that through some email list glitches, numbers of people (including me) did not get alerted. Although, alas, I have to teach last week of classes during the event tomorrow, I don’t think Vicki would mind my announcing the event – there’s a rsvp email at the bottom:
Tuesday, December 1, starting at 3:30, on the 12th floor of the Gewirz center on the Georgetown Law campus, 600 New Jersey Ave., N.W., Washington D.C.
The book party will have short comments on the book by three speakers: Dean Alex Aleinikoff, Professor Carlos Vazquez, both of Georgetown, and Professor David Fontana, of GW. I will then respond briefly to their comments, and then there will be a reception.
RSVP and queries, Erin Donovan, GT Special Events.
