Boston, MA (PRWEB) June 26, 2013
New England Law | Boston: Chief Justice of the United States John G. Roberts, Jr., is teaching in an international law school program offered this summer by New England Law | Boston, the third time in the past five years that New England Law students have had the opportunity to learn from the nation’s preeminent jurist.
Chief Justice Roberts will serve as a faculty member in Prague, Czech Republic, teaching “The U.S. Supreme Court in Historical Perspective.” Classes will be held at the historic Charles University Law Faculty building.
“I am very grateful to Chief Justice Roberts for accepting the invitations I have extended to him to teach in our summer programs,” said Dean John F. O’Brien. “Students who have taken his class in previous years have commented that it was a remarkable, once-in-a-lifetime experience.”
Chief Justice Roberts was a faculty member last summer at University of Malta’s Foundation for International Studies, and he taught in 2009 at New England Law | Boston’s summer program in Galway, Ireland. The programs are sponsored by the Consortium for Innovative Legal Education (CILE), of which New England Law is a founding member.
U.S. Supreme Court justices regularly bring their points of view to the New England Law’s classrooms and international programs. In 2011, U.S. Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy visited the International and Comparative Human Rights Law program in Galway, Ireland, as a guest-lecturer, and Justice Antonin Scalia taught there in 2008. Justices Harry Blackmun, Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Anthony Kennedy, Sandra Day O’Connor, and Clarence Thomas have also addressed faculty and students at the Boston law school.
