The Federal Constitutional Court of Germany will welcome a new judge in 2011: Prof. Dr. Susanna Baer, an enthusiastic comparativist whose work probes a number of fields including human rights, gender equality, law & religion, and legal theory.
Baer, who most recently held a professorship at the Humboldt University Berlin, has written a number of papers on comparative constitutional law, including a recent piece in the University of Toronto Law Journal entitled “Dignity, Liberty, Equality: A Fundamental Rights Triangle of Constitutionalism,” which is available here (subscription required). Her CV is available here, her publication list here, and her invited lectures here.
Baer previously earned a Master’s in Law from Michigan, where she also held a Cook Global Law Professorship last year. A recent press release from Michigan suggests that Baer will remain involved in some capacity at the Law School during her tenure at the Constitutional Court.
Congratulations to Judge-designate Prof. Dr. Baer!
