The Stanford Constitutional Law Center fosters scholarship on constitutional law. Directed by Michael W. McConnell, the Center continues Stanford Law School's tradition of excellence in constitutional law scholarship by sponsoring law student and post-graduate fellows in constitutional law, hosting major academic conferences on pressing constitutional questions, and bringing leading constitutional scholars to campus for lectures and to meet Stanford Law School students.
