Professor Mike Zimmer, one of our former Co-Op guests, asked me to pass along information about A Constitutional Law Colloquium: “How Democratic is the Constitution?” For those who are interested, here are the details:
Loyola University Chicago School of Law is organizing A Constitutional Law Colloquium at the Philip H. Corboy Law Center, 25 East Pearson Street, Chicago, IL 60611.

Professor Michael Zimmer, email@example.com, 312.915.7919
Loyola invites abstract submissions of 150 to 200 words from Constitutional Law professors interested in contributing to the current debates under the broad rubric of this topic. The goal of the conference is to allow professors to develop new ideas with the help of supportive colleagues on a wide range of constitutional law topics.
This is the first annual Loyola conference bringing together constitutional law scholars at all stages of their professional development to discuss current projects, doctrinal developments in constitutional law, and future goals. We hope to schedule presentations for all who submit. In this way, we will provide a forum for the vetting of ideas and invaluable opportunities for informed critiques. Presentations will be grouped by subject matter.
The submission deadline for abstracts is May 31, 2010.
Topics, abstracts, papers, questions, and comments should be submitted to:
Program Administrator Carrie Bird, firstname.lastname@example.org
Participants are expected to pay their own travel expenses. Loyola will provide facilities, support, and continental breakfasts on Friday and Saturday, lunch on Friday and Saturday, and a dinner on Friday night.
