INTERESTED IN INTERNATIONAL LAW
The 13th annual Henry C. Morris Lecture in International and Comparative
On Tuesday, September 26, at 12 noon in the Auditorium, please
plan on attending the 13th annual Henry C. Morris Lecture in
International and Comparative Law. This year’s lecture is entitled
Law and Remembering: Socialism in East Germany and its Impact Today.
Professor Inga Markovits will examine the ways in which the socialist
experience in the former German Democratic Republic affects the operation
of law in Germany today. She shows how public memories of the past
are constructed by political choices and how law plays important roles
in the process of selecting what images of the past are used.

Joe Jamail Regents Chair in 1996. Educated at the Free

in Behavioral Sciences at Stanford. She is the author of numerous
articles on civil law in East Germany, German family law, and socialism
and the rule of law for leading journals in
Europe and North America. She is the author of Imperfect Justice.
