The Harvard Italian Law Association presents: Italian Constitutional Justice in Global Context. The conference will feature Justice Marta Cartabia as keynote speaker: she is the current vice-President of the Italian Constitutional Court and has also been one of the potential nominees during the Italian Presidential elections. She will present the co-authored book “Italian Constitutional Justice in Global Context” (OUP, 2016), the first book providing an international examination of the Italian Constitutional Court (ItCC) in English.

As HILA’s honorary President, she has agreed to deliver a speech together with Prof. V. Barsotti (University of Florence), Prof. A. Simoncini (University of Florence), Prof. P. Carrozza (Notre Dame). Together, they will discuss about the distinctive structure, institutional dimensions, and well-developed jurisprudence of the ItCC. At the same time, they will also address the development, character, and importance of the ItCC’s jurisprudence in the larger arc of global judicial dialog.
