This week I will attend the Association of American Law Schools Mid-Year Conference in Constitutional Law in Cleveland, Ohio from 3 June to 6 June 2008. Here’s the statement of the reason for this conference: “Constitutional law is always changing, but the changes since the last AALS professional development program on constitutional law are particularly dramatic. The Supreme Court has significantly changed the emphasis of its prior jurisprudence of government power and abortion rights. The so-called federalism revolution of the 1990s might have reached its limits. Laurence Tribe announced that he had suspended working on his treatise on constitutional law because the field was in such flux that no overview seemed possible. How can scholars of constitutional law respond to these developments? Participants in the 2008 Conference on Constitutional Law will have a chance to consider these and many other topics.”
