Symposium Honors Professor Monaghan

Professor Henry P. Monaghan Honored at Symposium


The event was called “The View from the Curmudgeon’s Lair.” It was a lighthearted way for Law School colleagues, as well as professors from Yale and Harvard law schools, to honor Professor Henry P. Monaghan (top left), the Harlan Fiske Stone Professor of Constitutional Law. But the May 15 symposium was also devoted to two panel discussions. The first, “Current Problems in Federal Courts: Habeas, Extraterritoriality and ‘Litigation Governance’” looked at several post-9/11 detainee cases. The second panel, “Constitutional Common Law Revisited,” focused on a topic that has long had Monaghan as its leading advocate.

Among those speaking at the symposium (pictured above, clockwise) were John C. Coffee, the Adolf A. Berle Professor of Law; Gillian Metzger, Professor of Law; Phillip C. Bobbitt, the Herbert Wechsler Professor of Jurisprudence; Sarah H. Cleveland, the Louis Henkin Professor of Human and Constitutional Rights; and David M. Schizer, Dean and the Lucy G. Moses Professor of Law.
