Chapman '11, Lucas '11 and Mitchell '11: How Constitutions Are Made

Professor A. E. Dick Howard is in the process of preparing for a variety of endeavors and has asked us — Myra Hiott Chapman '11, Brinton Lucas '11 and Katie Mitchell '11 — to gather information on a diverse range of topics. Our work will directly contribute to three of Professor Howard’s many projects. The first of these is an essay on comparative constitutionalism commissioned by the Virginia Journal of International Law for its 50th anniversary volume. He also plans to use their research in preparing a series of programs he will present as the 2009-10 nonresident visiting scholar to the National Constitution Center and the University of Pennsylvania School of Law. Finally, our work will be incorporated into a course Howard will teach this fall, Constitutionalism: History and Jurisprudence.
