2012 news archive


Newton, MA--Jeremy Waldron, Chichele Professor of Social and Political Theory at All Souls College, University of Oxford and University Professor of Law, New York University School of Law, delivered the first in a new joint lecture series on Thursday, September 20, 2012, on Boston College's Chestnut Hill campus. "The Separation of Powers in Thought and Practice" was followed by a special appearance by Professor Waldron at BC Law's faculty colloquium on Friday.

The new series, the Clough Distinguished Lectures in Jurisprudence, is a joint effort between Boston College Law School and BC's Clough Center for the Study of Constitutional Democracy.

"The Clough Distinguished Lectures in Jurisprudence ambitions to be a venue for presentation and debate of rigorous, substantively and methodologically plural work in legal thought," said BC Law professor and Director of the Clough Center Vlad Perju. "The impressive list of those who have already accepted invitations is a testimony to the respect that the Law School and the University at large enjoy around the world."

In addition to Waldron, Professors David Garland (NYU), Seana Shiffrin (UCLA), Nicola Lacey (Oxford), and Robert George (Princeton) will also deliver lectures this year.
