These implications ripple through the most important and controversial doctrines of constitutional law, from the scope of the Commerce Clause to the reach of the First Amendment, from the meaning of equal protection to the content of privileges and immunities, from the nature of due process to the shape of abortion rights. And all of it derives from nothing more complicated than asking the right first question: who has violated the Constitution?
Nicholas Quinn Rosenkranz is a Professor of Law at Georgetown, where he teaches constitutional law and federal courts. He writes articles for the Harvard Law Review and the Stanford Law Review. He holds a B.A. and a J.D. from Yale University.
Rosenkranz is currently developing a new theory of constitutional interpretation and judicial review. The first installment, entitled The Subjects of the Constitution, was published in the Stanford Law Review in May of 2010, and it is already the single most downloaded article about constitutional interpretation, judicial review, and/or federal courts in the history of SSRN. The second installment, The Objects of the Constitution, was published in May of 2011, also in the Stanford Law Review. And the comprehensive version is forthcoming as a book by Oxford University Press.
Nicholas Rosenkranzs visit to CMC is sponsored by the Salvatori Center for the Study of Individual Freedom.
