Congratulations to W&L Law Professor Russell Miller who just wrapped up a very successful German Law Journal Symposium at the Washington & Lee University School of Law.
The discussion and fellowship were very stimulating, bringing together scholars from around the world to discuss the German Free Law Movement and Hermann Kantorowicz’s work The Battle for Legal Science. The presentations were at an extremely high level and very enlightening. W&L’s own Erik Luna participated in a panel discussing the legacy of free law, which Visiting W&L law professor Trey Childress moderated. Russ Miller’s presentation in another panel on free law in German Jurisprudence was truly fascinating, as we each learned how the German Constitutional Court might arguably be implementing some of the free law approach in its own work.
