Share this post:

On September 14, we held our annual Constitution Day event. This year’s event featured Harvard Law School William Nelson Cromwell Professor of Law emeritus Mark Tushnet in an interview with University of Virginia School of Law Dean Risa Goluboff.

Professor Tushnet and Dean Goluboff discussed Professor Tushnet’s book on the Hughes-era United States Supreme Court, The Hughes Court: From Progressivism to Pluralism, 1930 to 1941. Professor Tushnet’s book is part of the Holmes Devise series of books which are funded by a gift from the late Associate Justice Oliver Wendell Holmes and describe the history of the United States Supreme Court. Law Librarian of Congress Aslihan Bulut provided the opening remarks and closing remarks came from Jeanne Dennis, senior counsel, Legal Programs and Initiatives, of the American Law Division of the Congressional Research Service. Jeanne also provided an update on the Constitution Annotated, a site that provides the text of the Constitution, summaries, and the history of U.S. constitutional provisions and U.S. Supreme Court decisions that have interpreted them.
