Yale Law School, April 15-16, 2016. This Symposium is convened by Richard Albert (Boston College/Yale Law School) and Menaka Guruswamy (Yale Law School). Founding moments are landmark events that break ties with the ancien regime and lay the foundation for the establishment of modern states. Founding moments shape national law, influence surrounding countries, establish future power structures and legitimize certain political institutions within the country.

Introducing the new book-series “Comparative Constitutional Change” (Ashgate Publishing)

As part of our group’s research activities we are launching a new Comparative Constitutional Change book series.
Please feel free to circulate the news to scholars who might be interested in submitting a book proposal.

Comparative Constitutional Change has developed into a distinct field of constitutional law that encompasses the study of constitutions through the way they change and covers a wide scope of topics and methodologies. Books in this series include work on constitutional development in the functions of the constitution, the organization of powers and the protection of rights, but also work that focuses on formal amendment rules and the relation between constituent and constitutive power.
