• July 2012 – Originalism and Living Constitutionalism: A Symposium on Jack Balkin’s Living Originalism and David Strauss’s The Living Constitution
    • The first of the Boston University Law Review’s series of symposia on significant recent books in law. The distinctive format is to pick two significant books that join issue on an important topic, invite the author of each book to write an essay on the other book, and invite several Boston University School of Law faculty to write an essay on one or both books.
    • The symposium took place on November 3, 2011, at Boston University School of Law.
    • Professors Balkin and Strauss presented papers critiquing the other’s book.
    • Boston University School of Law faculty James Fleming, Linda McClain, Hugh Baxter, Gary Lawson, David Lyons, Abigail Moncrieff, and Larry Yackle presented papers in response to the books.  Professors Balkin and Strauss responded to these papers and a colloquy between Professors Balkin and Strauss, panelists, and audience members took place.
  • May 2012 – A Conference on Restitution and Unjust Enrichment
    • Boston University School of Law held a Conference on Restitution and Unjust Enrichment on September 16 and 17, 2011, with papers published in the May 2012 issue of the Boston University Law Review.
    • The Conference was cosponsored by the American Law Institute (ALI) and was held in honor of the ALI’s 2011 publication of the Restatement (Third) of Restitution and Unjust Enrichment.  Boston University School of Law Professor Andrew Kull served as the Reporter for the Restatement (Third), spending fifteen years bringing the project to fruition.
    • At the Conference on Restitution and Unjust Enrichment, participants were invited to address any topics within the law of restitution and unjust enrichment.  Prominent scholars from around the world gave live presentations.
