The Public Law Workshop (Spring 2014, Wed 1-3), with Professors Gersen and Vermeule, reads a mix of classic and contemporary work, in legal theory and adjacent disciplines, on the legal and political foundations of constitutional theory, practice, and regulatory design. In approximately half of the sessions, invited speakers will present papers on topics relevant to the workshop theme. Students will be required to write short response papers. Prerequisite: Instructor permission is required for enrollment. Applicants should send a brief statement of interest to Ellen Keng ( ekeng at law.harvard.edu) by January 21.
