Constitutional Studies Breakfast with Professor Amnon Reichman, Constitutional Law and Politics in Israel: Illiberal Pressures, Campaign Finance Indictments and the Upcoming Elections

Speaker:

Professor Amnon Reichman will present "Constitutional Law and Politics in Israel: Illiberal Pressures, Campaign Finance Indictments and the Upcoming Elections" during our Constitutional Studies Breakfast.

Amnon Reichman, ’94, holds an LL.B. from the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, an LL.M. from Boalt Hall, and an S.J.D. from the University of Toronto. His main areas of interest are constitutional theory, theories of regulation, adjudication and interpretation, comparative constitutional law (and human rights) and Law and Cyber. Prior to pursuing graduate work, he clerked for Justice Aharon Barak of the Israeli Supreme Court, and worked as an associate at Abramson and Co. LLP. In Jerusalem. He recently served as the President of the Israeli Law and Society Association, and has published in the area of law and society (and law and culture).

Reichman has been on the faculty of the University of Haifa Faculty of Law since 2001. He teaches courses in constitutional and administrative law, and seminars on theories of judicial review, interpretation and judicial discretion, and law and cyber. He was a visiting professor at the National Judicial College (University of Nevada) in 2007, in Boalt Hall in 2006-7, in Cardozo School of Law in 2004, and a faculty fellow at the Edmond J. Safra Foundation Center for Ethics (formerly the Center for Ethics and the Professions) at Harvard University in 2000-01. He is currently a PI (Principle Investigator) at the Minerva Center for the Study of the Rule of Law Under Extreme Condition, at the University of Haifa.

Reichman has published numerous articles on comparative and Israeli issues, including an article in CLR (examining the relationship between public confidence, the judicial role and the role of scholarship). His current project under submission analyzes different models of regulating judges and the production of justice.
