Wisconsin Law Review Symposium Spotlights Comparative Institutional Analysis
Scholars from a wide range of legal disciplines (administrative law, constitutional law, intellectual property, international law) met at the Wisconsin Law Review symposium on October 19-20 to celebrate the work of Wisconsin law professor Neil Komesar and his development of comparative institutional analysis. The title of presentations and list of speakers can be found here: http://law.wisc.edu/lrs/. Discussions ranged from the variations of institutional analysis, the New Legal Realism, the implications for administrative law and judicial review, and applicability to such wide ranging topics as the design of international institutions, same sex marriage, and health care reform. Look for audio of the event to be posted shortly and the Wisconsin Law Review Symposium issue to be published in the Spring. Kudos to the Wisconsin Law Review and to Wisconsin law professor Andrew Coan for their hard work and vision in putting together this event.
