Institute for Constitutional Studies Events:
George Washington University Law School, where I teach, is home to the Institute for Constitutional Studies, a terrific center run by the constitutional scholar Maeva Marcus. The ICS puts on a series of wonderful events, some of which are open to the public and some of which are seminars for grad students and/or junior faculty from any school.

  I've found that fewer people know of the ICS than should know of it, so I wanted to flag it for grad students, junior faculty, or members of the public in the DC area who might want to come to an event. For example, I just received notice of a terrific seminar for graduate students that the ICS will be hosting in the fall taught by Mark Tushnet: The Rights Revolution in the Twentieth Century (.pdf link to flyer advertising the seminar). If you're interested, check it out.

  For the record, the Institute for Constitutional Studies has no affiliation with the Center for Constitutional Studies, the Institute for Humane Studies, the Institute for Justice, or the People's Front of Judea.

But what about the Judean People's Front?

Sounds interesting. Any chance of an audio track being posted for those of us outside the DC area?

Orin--Great plug for the ICS. You're right--too few people know about the amazing programs they run. I've been involved in two of their seminars as both a grad student and now junior faculty. Maeva deserves all the credit in the world for her efforts on behalf of constitutional scholarship and teaching.
