other professional highlights

• On Oct. 8, 2018, I was granted an honorary doctorate in jurisprudence by the University of Trieste, Italy, for my “contributions to comparative constitutional law.” My Lectio Magistralis upon receiving the degree, “Revolutionary Constitutionalism and the Rule of Law,” will be published by the University in the coming months.

• Thanks to a generous grant by the Oscar M. Ruebhausen Fund, twenty judges and scholars flew to New Haven from around the world to debate the questions raised by my forthcoming book, Revolutionary Constitutions. Professor Richard Albert of the University of Texas played a key role in organizing this conference in August 2018, and will be the editor of a collection of the essays presented at the conference.

• On Oct. 5, 2018, the University of Milan conducted a day-long conference on Revolutionary Constitutions, at which leading Italian scholars and justices from the constitutional court engaged in a spirited conversation on the book’s implications for the future of Italy and Europe. Professor Lorenza Violini took the lead in organizing the sessions, and will lead a team of scholars who will be preparing the commentaries, and my response, for publication in a leading journal of comparative constitutional law.
