Encounters with Constitutional Interpretation and Legal Education

What do constitutional interpretation and legal education have in common? For one thing, they share the same tension between theory and practice, between form and substance, between process and outcomes, between constancy and change, and between local and comparative perspectives.

Policing the Rural Crisis

There is a growing sense of crisis in rural ways of life, which manifests itself in economic decline, depopulation, depleted environments, and a crisis of rural identities.
