Judicial Review at GWU

The George Washington Law Review and the Washington Area Legal History Roundtable present "Judicial Review: Historical Debate, Modern Perspectives, and Comparative Approaches," to be held on Friday, October 16 at GW Law School, 2000 H St., N.W., Washington, D.C. This symposium takes up the history and contemporary practice of judicial review and is inspired by two new books: Philip Hamburger's Law and Judicial Duty and Barry Friedman's The Will of the People. Each will have its panel; a third panel will be devoted to "contemporary and comparative judicial review."

Here's the schedule, minus the meals and coffee breaks. For more information, please contact Rebecca Bianchi, the special projects editor of the Law Review who is coordinating the symposium, at rbianchi@law.gwu.edu.
