A. Christopher Bryant
- Prof. A. Christopher Bryant, University of Cincinnati College of Law
Is the DC gun ban constitutional? Do Guantanamo Bay prisoners have a constitutional right to bring habeas actions challenging their detentions? Does Louisiana's law authorizing the death penalty for child rape violate the Eighth Amendment? These questions and many others were answered in the U.S.
Supreme Court's October 2007 term. Professor Christopher Bryant will discuss the Court's term, what it tells us about the Roberts Court, emerging jurisprudential themes and trends, and the future of the Court.
Professor Bryant is a prolific Constitutional scholar. After earning his JD from the University of Chicago Law School, Professor Bryant clerked for James L. Buckley of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit.
