KIM LANE SCHEPPELE Professor of Law and Sociology presented “Counter-Constitutions” at the annual meetings of the American Sociological Association in August in August and “Dependence on Standing Body of State: One Fatal Flaw in Bush v. Gore” at the American Political Science Association meeting in September. In July, Professor Scheppele co-chaired the program committee for the joint meeting of the Law and Society Association and the Research Committee on the Sociology of Law, held at Central European University in Budapest, Hungary where she also presented a paper called “The Quarantined Past.” The Budapest program was the largest in the history of these meetings, with more than 1,000 papers presented and about 1,500 people in attendance. The focus of the conference was “Law in Action” and featured the work of scholars working at the intersection of law and the social sciences from around the world with a particular focus on the role of law in democratic transitions. As the recipient of a grant from the National Science Foundation, after receiving permission to undertake a study of petitions from ordinary citizens to the Russian Constitutional Court, Scheppele inaugurated a research project at the Court, where she will conduct research in Spring 2002. Her study will focus on what happens to unexamined petitions and how the court answers them in unofficial ways, creating what she calls a body of “subdoctrinal constitutional law.” She gave a talk called “Requiem for the Rule of Law: The 2000 Election and the Failure of American Courts” at the Harvard Law School Workshop on Constitutional Law and Constitutional Theory in February.
