"Law's Abnegation" at Villanova Law

I am pleased to announce that MOJ's own Adrian Vermeule, John H. Watson Professor of Law at Harvard Law School, will deliver the keynote address at the annual John F. Scarpa Conference on Law, Politics, and Culture to be held at Villanova University Charles Widger School of Law on Friday, September 21, 2018.  The conference will focus on the topics and themes of Prof. Vermeule's Law's Abnegation: From Law's Empire to the Administrative State (Harvard University Press, 2018). There is something for everyone in Vermeule's searching account of law and how it works under our Constitution today.   
 
Details about the conference will be published in due course.  In addition to Prof. Vermeule, other speakers at the conference will include:
 
-- Jeff Pojanowski, Professor of Law, University of Notre Dame
-- Edward Rubin, University Professor of Law and Political Science, Dean emeritus, Vanderbilt     Law School
-- Colleen Murphy, Professor of Law and Professor of Philosophy, University of Illinois
-- Emily Bremer, Assistant Professor of Law, University of Wyoming College of Law
