Transformative Constitutionalism: Not Only in the Global South

The Jean Monnet Center for International and Regional Economic Law & Justice invited the NYU law community to the lunchtime event Transformative Constitutionalism: Not Only in the Global South” (forthcoming in the American Journal of Comparative Law) presented by guest speaker Dr. Michaela Hailbronner. Comments were provided by Sergio Verdugo, JSD candidate, NYU School of Law, followed by a discussion with the audience in the 1st Floor Lounge at 22 Washington Square North.

Michaela Hailbronner currently teaches at the University of Münster as a postdoctoral fellow. Her research is in the fields of comparative public law, public international and European law, and she is currently working on a new project that investigates how courts can react to institutional failure elsewhere. 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.
