Krishnakumar Speaks at Harvard ACS Event

On Wednesday, March 10th, Professor Anita S. Krishnakumar participated in a panel discussion titled “Progressive Theories of Statutory Interpretation:  Responses to Textualism and Beyond,” sponsored by the Harvard chapter of the American Constitution Society. The event, which was held virtually, brought together several prominent statutory interpretation scholars who shared their views about the current state of statutory interpretation in the U.S. Courts — including the ascendance of textualism, the proper role of legislative history, and the like. The other panelists included Matthew Stephenson (Harvard), Victoria Nourse (Georgetown), Larry Solan (Brooklyn), and Ryan Doerfler (Chicago).
