The Boston Lawyer Chapter of the American Constitution Society presented:
Supreme Court Review: Health Care, Immigration and Other Key Decisions from October Term 2011
*First in a monthly lunch discussion series.*
With opening remarks by:
The Honorable Peter J. Rubin
Associate Justice, Massachusetts Appeals Court; Founder, American Constitution Society
This event featured the distinguished Harvard Law School Professor Mark Tushnet. Professor Tushnet specializes in constitutional law and theory, including comparative constitutional law. His research includes studies examining the practice of judicial review in the United States and around the world. Professor Tushnet writes extensively in the area of legal and constitutional history, with works on the development of civil rights law in the United States. Currently, he is working on a long-term project on the history of the Supreme Court in the 1930s. This fall, Professor Tushnet is organizing conferences on American constitutional development as well the world's constitutional courts.
This represented the first of a regular lunch series to build greater connections within Boston's progressive legal community. Each luncheon will feature a thirty minute talk by a distinguished member of our legal community, followed by questions and casual conversation. We hope that this will be an opportunity to see old colleagues, meet new friends, and mingle with some of the great minds of the law.
