Stephen B. Burbank, David Berger Professor for the Administration of Justice, participated in a June 2002 meeting to discuss the American Law Institute’s International Jurisdiction and Judgments project, for which he is an Advisor. In May 2002, Burbank taught a short course at the University of Urbino (Italy) and presented a short paper on federal judicial selection at a symposium sponsored by the American Judicature Society in Washington, D.C. Also in May 2002, Burbank became a Life Member of the American Law Institute. In April 2002, he moderated and participated in the program at the annual meeting of the American Academy of Political and Social Science on judicial independence, an event coordinated with the publication of Burbank’s co-edited book on that subject. In March 2002, Burbank was the Symposium Moderator and also moderator of a panel at a conference on Litigation in a Free Society co-sponsored by Penn Law, Washington University Law School and the Institute for Law and Economic Policy. The following week he presented a paper, “What Do We Mean by Judicial Independence?” at a conference in Columbus, Ohio. Professor Burbank presented “Procedure, Politics and Power” to the Section of Civil Procedure of the Association of American Law Schools in January 2002. He was a member of a panel of academics asked to comment on a draft report concerning the selection of class counsel at the Third Circuit Judicial Conference during the Fall of 2001. He moderated a panel on proposed amendments to the Federal Rules at a class action conference held by the Advisory Committee on Civil Rules in the Fall. He is a director of the American Academy of Political and Social Sciences.
