German Law Journal
The author posits that Americans’ interest in German constitutional law can be traced to a single source. Donald Kommers (1932-2018), the political scientist and legal scholar at Notre Dame, pioneered the field of comparative constitutional law and popularized German constitutional jurisprudence in the English speaking world with his groundbreaking study of the German Federal Constitutional Court, and his seminal, English-language treatise on German constitutional law that first published in 1989.
