Her analysis of German constitutionalism against a broader comparative background appeared in a paper that won the I.CON Inaugural Best Paper Award 2014 and in her book Traditions and Transformations: The Rise of German Constitutionalism (Oxford University Press, 2015). Dr. Hailbronner received her J.S.D. and an LL.M. from Yale Law School after completing her two German law exams at the University of Freiburg and the High Court of Berlin.
