Harry Scheiber Gives Cassel Lecture at Stockholm University
In September Professor Harry Scheiber delivered the Cassel Lecture at Stockholm University in Sweden. The prestigious lecture is given annually by a legal scholar or public figure of international distinction. Professor Scheiber is the second American to have been invited to present the lecture since the program’s founding in 1987.
Scheiber’s talk, “Federalism and the Traditions of American Law,” provided an analysis of how America’s traditions of state rights, national power, human rights and judicial review have developed since the nation’s founding. The lecture was attended by Swedish supreme court and lower court justices, as well as university faculty members.
