Lewis & Clark Law School is pleased to announce that the 2017-18 International Law Distinguished Visitor will be Mila Versteeg, Class of 1941 Research Professor of Law and Director of the Human Rights Program at the University of Virginia School of Law. Her research and teaching interests include comparative constitutional law, public international law and empirical legal studies. Most of her research deals with the origins, evolution and effectiveness of provisions in the world’s constitutions. In 2017, Versteeg was named an Andrew Carnegie Fellow, which provided her with a $200,000 award to expand her research into the world’s constitutions to better understand how constitutional rights are enforced in different countries.

Professor Versteeg’s lecture will be delivered at noon on Wednesday, March 7, and will be entitled “Do Constitutional Rights Make A Difference?”

A reception will follow the lecture.

The lecture and reception will be open to the Lewis & Clark community and the general public, but space will be limited. Please RSVP.
