Cardozo Conference on Ancient and Modern Constitutionalism

The Floersheimer Center for Constitutional Democracy at Cardozo Law is hosting a symposium on April 2 titled Constitutionalism, Ancient and Modern.  Here's from the description:

The purpose of the symposium is to put the constitutionalism of the ancients on the agenda of contemporary constitutional scholars.  Among the themes the symposium will explore are the challenges pre-modern constitutions pose to modern constitutionalism, the struggle for constitutional order and economic equality in Athens and Rome, religious sources of constitutionalism, direct versus representative lawmaking, and the relationship of constitutionalism to dictatorship and absolutism.

The line-up is terrific.  John P. McCormack (Chicago Poli. Sci.) will deliver the keynote, Keep the Public Rich and the Citizens Poor: Economic Equality and Ancient Constitutionalism.

The symposium is free and open to the public.  RSVP to cardozosymposiaeditor@gmail.com or 212.790.0200 x6700.
