Fleming on the Life and Work of Ronald Dworkin
Posted By Danielle Citron On February 18, 2013 @ 11:01 am In Constitutional Law,Current Events,Symposium (Ordered Liberty) | 1 Comment
Over at Balkanization, Professor James Fleming has a touching eulogy honoring Ronald Dworkin, see here . Professor Fleming  is The Honorable Frank R. Kenison Distinguished Scholar in Law, Associate Dean for Intellectual Life, and Professor of Law at Boston University School of Law. It’s a fitting tribute, all the more so given that Fleming has enriched Dworkin’s life-long project of taking rights seriously and, like Dworkin, has been a extraordinary guide in helping us understand the moral complexities of pressing constitutional issues. New week, we shall be talking about Fleming and Linda McClain’s new book, Ordered Liberty: Rights, Responsibilities, and Virtues , which develops a civic liberalism that takes responsibilities and civic virtues – as well as rights – seriously.
