  • A Comparativist Joins the German Constitutional Court

    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).
