Tom Ginsburg, the Leo Spitz Professor of International Law, Ludwig and Hilde Wolf Research Scholar, and professor of political science at the University of Chicago Law School, will present "How to Lose and Save Constitutional Democracy" at the 21st annual Bell Distinguished Lectureship in Law on Tuesday, April 17 at the College of Wooster.
 
The free public lecture will begin at 7:30 p.m. in Lean Lecture Room of Wishart Hall, located at 303 E. University St. A dessert reception will precede the lecture.
 
Ginsburg, who received a B.A., J.D. and Ph.D. from the University of California at Berkley, focuses on comparative and international law from an interdisciplinary perspective.
 
His published books include “Judicial Review in New Democracies,” which won the C. Herman Pritchett Award from the American Political Science Association; “The Endurance of National Constitutions,” which also won a best book prize from APSA; “Constitutions in Authoritarian Regimes;” and most recently “Judicial Reputation: A Comparative Theory.”
 
The content of this year’s Bell lecture is drawn from his forthcoming book (2018), co-authored by Aziz Huq, “How Constitutional Democracy is Lost (and Saved).”
 
He currently co-directs the Comparative Constitutions Project, an effort funded by the National Science Foundation to gather and analyze the constitutions of all independent nation-states since 1789. Before he began teaching law, he served as a legal adviser at the Iran-U.S. Claims Tribunal, The Hague, Netherlands, and he continues to work with numerous international development agencies and foreign governments on legal and constitutional reform. He is a member of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences.
