Time and Location

Come explore the origins of the U.S. Constitution and its impact on other countries with constitutional expert Lorianne Updike Toler.

Her talk, “Constitution-Writing at Home and Abroad,” will address the American experience of writing the Constitution following the Revolution as well as the quite different experience that followed in Europe shortly thereafter. 

Updike Toler is a constitutional legal historian and president of Libertas Constitutional Consulting, where she specializes in constitution-writing best practices. She has engaged in such work in Libya and elsewhere, and she also founded the Constitutional Sources Project in Washington, D.C.

The event is free and open to the public. It is being offered as part of New England Law’s Center for International Law and Policy speaker series, and is co-sponsored by the school’s American Constitution Society, Federalist Society, and International Law Society.

Refreshments will be provided.
