Zur Person:
Peter Lindseth is the Olimpiad S. Ioffe Professor of International and Comparative Law at the University of Connecticut School of Law. He holds a JD from Cornell University and a PhD in European history from Columbia University. His teaching and research focus on European integration, American and comparative administrative law, and the legal and political history of the modern state in relation to the underlying process of social change.

Currently, Peter Lindseth is the Daimler Fellow at the American Academy in Berlin. He has served as a visiting professor at both Yale Law School and Princeton University, and as a Research Scholar and Associate Director of the European Legal Studies Center at Columbia Law School. In Europe, Lindseth has been a visiting fellow at the Max Planck Institute for European Legal History in Frankfurt, a Jean Monnet Fellow at the Robert Schuman Center for Advanced Studies and a lecturer at the Academy of European Law, both at the European University Institute in Florence, Italy. Additionally, Lindseth has served as a visiting professor on several law faculties in France (Paris and Aix), and, while in graduate school, as a Chateaubriand Fellow at the French Conseil d’Etat, France’s supreme administrative court.                   

Zum Vortragsthema:
"In this simulated classroom experience in an American style Socratic dialogue, Professor Lindseth will provide a basic introduction to certain key aspects of judicial review of administrative action in American (federal) law.  The vehicles for discussion will be two cases, Lujan v. Defenders of Wildlife (US SCt 1992), edited version available here:
and Gonzales v. Oregon (US SCt 2006), edited version available here: The first case deals with standing, and the second with scope of review on questions regulatory and statutory interpretation.  Lurking in the background of both cases are structural constitutional principles, notably separation of powers and federalism.  To help you make your way through these difficult topics, you might want to glance at the attached handout, 'Reading Administrative Law Cases'.  Prof. Lindseth gives this handout to his students at the beginning of each new semester, to help them structure their reading of the often complex cases they confront in Administrative Law."

Der Vortrag findet in englischer Sprache statt. Die Teilnahme ist kostenfrei.

Die Veranstaltung richtet sich an alle DAJV-Mitglieder (nicht nur Studierende!).
