Frank Michelman is the Robert Walmsley University Professor at Harvard Law School. Since 1995, he has maintained an active interest in South African constitutionalism. He has participated, by invitation, in judges' seminars in that country, and has visited for academic gatherings and conferences, and expects to continue doing so. Frank has published in American law reviews on aspects of South African constitutional law, and recently has contributed a chapter to South Africa's leading, multi-authored work on South African constitutional law ("Constitutional Law of South Africa"). He has also attended and provided papers for several conferences on comparative constitutionalism in Europe and Israel, and the VI World Congress of the International Association of Constitutional Law in Santiago de Chile. He is a member of the Board of Editors of the International Journal of Constitutional Law (I-CON), and of the Board of Directors in the United States Association of Constitutional law (an affiliate of the International Association). For the past few years, Frank has regularly taught courses on general comparative constitutionalism and also on the South African Bill of Rights in comparison with its American counterpart.
