ConLawProf Penelope (Penny) Pether authored terrific work on comparative constitutional law and government power, including her piece Comparative Constitutional Epics which we discussed here. Known as one of the leading lights of the discipline loosely described as "law and literature," her work was uniquely devoted to constitutional theory and to comparative constitutional doctrine.
In addition to being a incisive scholar, she was a generous, smart, humorous, and honest colleague with a keen devotation to pedagogy.
Here's a video of her speaking about student-centered learning:
She will be deeply missed.
